FDA Webinar Clarification

by | Jan 30, 2014 | News | 0 comments

The Department of Animal Science at the University of Illinois hosted a webinar addressing the new FDA Guidance rules on January 28th. During this webinar it was stated that the current rule requires a hard copy of a VFD to be submitted in accompaniment with the electronic VFD to the feed mill. This statement is incorrect according to the FDA Guidance #120, where it states the specifics about electronic requirements under 21 CFR Part 11. It sets out the criteria under which the agency considers electronic records, electronic signatures, and handwritten signatures executed to electronic records to be generally equivalent to paper records and handwritten signatures executed on paper eVFD orders issued by veterinarians must be compliant with Part 11, and eVFD orders received and electronically stored by feed distributors and clients must be compliant with Part 11. Currently an electronic VFD is compliant to the current FDA rules on VFD submission to key stakeholders. For more information on the current ruling, click here.
