Version Control aids compliance with (21 CFR 11.10(d)) of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations. The regulations describe control over limiting access to the system and ensuring that only authorized individuals can use the system, sign a project, view or alter a record. Part 11 compliant systems must also detect unauthorised attempts to gain access to the system.

  • Version control limits access to authorized individuals only with a valid username and password.
  • Disabling of certain actions or sequence of actions based on a state of actions (operational checks) and user permissions (authority checks).
  • All electronic signatures remain permanently associated with the electronic records, including time, date and reason for approval.
