Why Implement a FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Software System?
Within a year of 21 CFR Part 11 first going into effect MasterControl Inc. introduced the industry's first document management software solution specifically designed to help life sciences organizations comply with FDA regulations, the regulations delineated in 21 CFR Part 11 in particular. MasterControl's solutions streamline and automate GxP processes and facilitate effective management of document control, change control, training control, audits, corrective/preventative action (CAPA), customer complaints, and other quality and business processes, all under a single Web-based platform.
FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance Solutions
MasterControl GxP process management software solutions go beyond FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements and regulations to help companies also sustain current industry best practices (CGxP). In 1998, MasterControl became the first software provider to release a software solution that addressed FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. Since then, MasterControl has continued to go beyond requirements for implementing a GxP process management software solution for easier compliance, faster validation, and better CGxP process management.
MasterControl's FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant Quality System
MasterControl has developed state-of-the-art document control and quality management solutions that are 100% compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations. MasterControl's solution features provide the following benefits:
Part 11 Section 11.10 requires an assurance of the authenticity of electronic records. MasterControl allows system administrators to delineate user permissions for every document vault in the system. MasterControl also creates an audit trail of any captured document.
Part 11 Section 11.10 also requires that the possibility that a signer would repudiate an approval be minimized. MasterControl requires users to enter two passwords to approve any type of document collaboration. The first password is the login password and the second password is an approval password.
Part 11 Section 11.10a requires the validation of the electronic system. MasterControl has developed tools, solution and services that can reduce the effort of software validation for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 by 50%.
Part 11 Section 11.10i requires that all those who have been approved to use the electronic system are trained to perform assigned duties. MasterControl provides training automation that is automatically triggered when an essential quality document is revised to ensure sustained FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. MasterControl training also automates the follow-ups and escalations of past-due training and creates an audit trail of all training data.
Part 11 Section 11.10k requires document controls that provide revision controls, change controls and time-based system modifications. MasterControl provides all of these document control features.
Part 11 Section 11.50a requires signed electronic records with the following data: name, date/time of signing, and meaning of signature. MasterControl provides fields for all required information to ensure FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance and for additional information if additional fields are desired by the user.
Part 11 Section 11.70 requires the linking of electronic (and handwritten) signatures to their corresponding electronic records. MasterControl automatically links every signature to a specified record.
