Euthymics Bioscience Collaborates with GlobalSign and SafeNet to provide an FDA approved Electronic Signature Solution

February 8, 2010 by · Comments Off on Euthymics Bioscience Collaborates with GlobalSign and SafeNet to provide an FDA approved Electronic Signature Solution 

Web Hosting ToolsPortsmouth, NH – GlobalSign Inc., one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in Digital Identities for securing PDF documents, has today announced the success of GlobalSign’s digital signature solution, DocumentSign in the pharmaceutical industry. Euthymics, a start-up biotechnology company has implemented a joint GlobalSign and SafeNet solution not only designed to meet the requirements of FDA regulated activities, but to solve Euthymics’ need for a streamlined, improved, and standardized documenting process deploying electronic signatures.

Before the introduction of digital signatures Euthymics, a biopharmaceutical company focused on neuroscience, was required to hand-sign documents and manually manage the process of distribution, storage, and retrieval of all signed records. This manual process extended project schedules and deadlines and increased cost due to the overhead of archiving, mailing, and faxing documents. Recognizing the cost and time saving advantages of using electronic signatures over hand signatures, Euthymics required a solution that automated the streamlined exchange of documents from remote locations, and critically complied with Federal Regulations for electronic signatures and electronic records (Title 21 CFR Part 11). Title 21 CFR Part 11 of the Code of Federal Regulations establishes criteria under which electronic records and electronic signatures are considered trustworthy, reliable, and equivalent to paper records.
