How does EasyMatch QC-ER software comply with FDA 21 CFR Part 11?

There are several parts to the 21 CFR Part 11 documents with a good overview of 21 CFR Part 11 at the US FDA website. Part C is the key section concerned with electronic records retention.The issue is not about sensor conformance – HunterLab sensors such as the UltraScan PRO, UltraScan VIS, ColorQuest XE and LabScan XE are closed systems. The focus of FDA CFR Part 11 compliance is about the security of electronic records created as color measurements in software/firmware. EZMQC-ER software was developed by HunterLab to meet these needs. The “ER” stands for “Electronic Records”.

Attachment A in the EZMQC-ER Validation and Compliance Notebook details each of the FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements, and how HunterLab’s EasyMatch QC-ER software meets them with procedure and technical implementation.

With each CD copy of EZMQC-ER software, HunterLab supplies a hardcopy  of the EZMQC-ER Validation and Compliance Notebook that lists the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11 along with details on how the requirements are met by EZMQC ER software. In addition, a complete digital copy is supplied on the CD for clients who maintain digital document libraries on conformance issues.

Pharmaceutical clients who wish to have their compliance department review the documentation prior to installation at their site, can search on “Validation and Compliance Notebook” found at the HunterLab website.

Three (3) sections of the notebook are particularly useful regarding 21 CFR Part 11 compliance of EasyMatch QC-ER:
