Why target adherence to Part 11 requirements?
The truth is that over the past few years Part 11 requirements, which were first established in 1997, haven't taken a tremendous amount of precedence during FDA inspections. This was partially due to the controversial nature of the creation of the Part 11 standards. However, over the passage of more than a decade and with many companies with significant amounts of additional IT resources, it's probably a good time for the FDA to determine how industry is currently choosing to implement Part 11 requirements.1 These audits may of course lead to additional changes in the regulatory documentation.
