21 CFR Part 11 describes the quality standards required of all computer systems used in FDA-regulated industry. This regulation provides the basic framework for computer systems used to generate records and data used for analysis and presentation. However, for any organization trying to understand and implement Part 11 requirements, there are only two options: One, hire expensive consultants and purchase expensive software, or implement self-created systems and live in constant fear of findings of non-compliance during FDA audits. In this seminar, we will simplify the regulatory requirements and add practical tips for quick and easy verification of compliance with FDA requirements which can be self-implemented by most organizations with minimum technical expertise
