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.
Physically storing all the paperwork that comprises an audit trail is costly and cumbersome. The retrieval process of improperly managed documentation can be a paperwork nightmare.
A paper audit trail presents many challenges when it comes to liability. Maintaining paper means you risk documents being lost or damaged—compounded with a lack of secure backups!

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.
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.
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.
