MSB Sets The Bar For Compliance With Secure Audit trails
As a critical staple of electronic documentation, audit trails are used to ensure the integrity of documents. MSB’s in-depth audit trails enable data integrity; keeping your records verifiable, trusted, and secure.
Key Challenges Of The Paper-Based Audit Trail
Ingredients of an audit trail
Link to Record
This is required to guarantee traceability, leading back to the record directly. Often this will be the record’s unique ID.
Date & Time Stamp
An accurate date and time stamp is critical in maintaining record integrity. It also plays a key part in defense against record falsification and fraud.
Original & New Values
Details the sequence of events that took place in the document lifecycle. All values that are applied to a record must be present in the audit trail.
MSB prioritizes data integrity in accordance with GxP guidelines. This ensures that your records are legally defensible and comply to critical industry regulations
Each signing activity is timestamped to record key information such as creation, modification, and approval. These timestamps protect your documents from human error.

What information is required within an audit trail?
For an audit trail to be 21 CFR part 11 compliant it must track all “operator entries and actions that create, modify, or delete electronic records.” This includes user identity, document creation as well as modifications and deletions to the data.
What is the difference between an event log and an audit trail?
Event logs note system level events, such as errors and outages, as well as administrative changes. This information alone does not meet the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11. An audit trail, however, records any and all changes made to system data.
Is it difficult to review audit trail information?
MSB provides a pain-free method to access and review audit trail information. All actions, identities, and timestamps are available within the “activities” tab of each ePak within the system. We also provide an audit trail report within each document ePhotocopy.
