Few would argue with the need for pharmaceutical businesses to follow safe and proven quality assurance procedures. To this end, companies have been operating traceability systems and keeping records founded on good manufacturing practice (GMP) and good distribution practice (GDP) for a number of years. More recently, as automated monitoring and recording systems have become more commonplace, 21 CFR Part 11 has been introduced and provides appropriate guidelines for the application of electronic record keeping and signatures. Effectively, 21 CFR Part 11 defines the criteria under which electronic records and electronic signatures are considered to be trustworthy and reliable. MHRA guidelines share many of the safeguards.

Levels in key areas, such as laboratories, cold stores, chill rooms, incubators, test chambers, production processes and storage areas need to be regularly monitored and procedures put in place to establish corrective actions if they move outside pre-set limits. Documents, together with complete and comprehensive records, need to be kept and electronic systems need to comply with necessary guidelines.
