As part of its commitment to excellence, TUNECT CRO proudly stands as a 21 CFR Part 11 compliant company. This entails stringent adherence to specific requirements that enable effective data management:
– Validation: We meticulously validate our computerized systems, ensuring they perform optimally and meet regulatory standards.
– Audit Trail: Our computer-generated, time-stamped audit trails offer enhanced traceability, especially when users create, modify, or delete regulated records during routine operations.
– Legacy Systems: If your system meets specific criteria, such as being operational and compliant with applicable predicate rule requirements before the effective date of Part 11, enforcement discretion is exercised.
