Presented by: Frederick J. Sperry Validation Manager NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

2 Agenda Regulatory History Regulation Applicability
E-Record Requirements Review E-Signature Requirements Review What’s New With FDA Enforcement Q&A NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

3 Regulatory History 1997 – 21 CFR Part 11; Final Rule
– Enforcement, 6 Draft Guidances Issued 2003 – Previous Guidances Withdrawn 2003 – Guidance on Scope and Application (Kindler – Gentler Part 11) cGMPS for 21st Century Enforcement discretion NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

4 Regulatory History Enforcement Discretion – what did that mean?
Agency has not generally enforced certain Part 11 requirements without other issues Guidance does not carry the weight of law Systems and applications still must meet predicate rule requirements The use of a System or Application Risk Assessment is a good tool to identify and focus on key issues associated with compliance to predicate rules. NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

5 Regulatory History Risk Assessment Basics for Part 11
Determining the Need for a Control Determining the Type of Control to be Implemented Factors for Consideration Impact on Product Quality and / or Public Health Likelihood of Risk Scenario impacting product or status reporting or release data Identify any Mitigating Factors – extra testing or procedural controls NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

6 Regulatory History The Future Revision to Part 11 eventually
But hasn’t been a priority Current Part 11 regulations continue to be enforceable Enforcement likely to reflect current thinking from latest guidance New Inspectional Guidance Process To assess compliance in Industry Post Inspections, expect Part 11 to be revisited NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

7 Regulation Applicability
Why is Part 11 necessary? Paper Records / Handwritten Sigs E-Records / E-Signatures (+) Fixed Representation (+) Durable (+) Changes Very Evident (+) Copies Evident (+) Signatures Hard to Forge (-) Need Storage Space (-) Inefficiency of Search / Sharing (+) Global Sharing (+) Rapid Analysis and Search (+) Efficient Review and Approval (-) Changes / Copies Not Evident (-) Selective Data Views (-) Higher Possibility of Data Loss (-) Easy to Forge Signatures NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

8 Regulation Applicability

11 Regulation Applicability
Paper vs. Electronic Records Key Points for Exemption Still responsible for ensuring data integrity from creation to printing Once hardcopy is generated, electronic records cannot be used for any regulated purpose – even as a backup in case paper is lost Decision to use paper (or electronic records) should be documented Should have procedures and training indicating electronic records not to be used after printing Preferable to purge electronic records after printing NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010

13 Regulation Applicability
Legacy Systems Key Points for Legacy Exemption System must have met all predicate rule requirements prior to August 20, 1997 The system currently meets all predicate rule requirements Documented evidence and justification exists that the system meets its intended use (i.e., validation) No changes have been made to the system that prevent the system from meeting predicate rule requirements NOTES: _________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ _ ©QPharma 2010
