Is LabVIEW Software CFR 21 Part 11 compliant? How do I create applications with LabVIEW which are CFR 21 Part 11 compliant?


Title 21 CFR Part 11 is the part of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations that establishes the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations on electronic records and electronic signatures (ERES).

Part 11, as it is commonly called, defines the criteria under which electronic records and electronic signatures are considered trustworthy, reliable, and equivalent to paper records (Title 21 CFR Part 11 Section 11.1 (a)).

A software as such cannot be compliant to any regulation; it is rather the application created from the software that should be compliant.
