What is 21 CFR Part 11 for temperature recording devices?

21 CFR Part 11 also is generally known as CFR Part 11. The entire description is part 11 of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR); Electronic Records; Electronic Signatures

CFR Part 11 is the name of an American Regulation by the FDA. It is a reference that is not only used in the USA but worldwide (even though some equivalent ones could exist in several countries).qualification of cold storage

This standard is usually known and requested in the life science industry. If you want to rely on loggers to certify that pharmaceutical products are correctly maintained within their proper range of temperature, you have to make sure that data generated are reliable.

The purpose of 21 CFR part 11 is basically to ensure that the data read and stored by the software and electronic instruments are entirely accurate.
