21 CFR part 11 Compliance

The developer of Emory's eIRB system confirms that it "meets or exceeds the requirements in 21 CFR Part 11 (PDF) for “closed” systems by providing manageable name/password administration, strong passwords with rotation options and electronic signature components that are only executable by, and designed to be used only by, specified individuals for specific approval actions."
