NARA Releases Guidance for Records Management

The United States National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has developed this guidance for agencies implementing electronic signature technologies. This was done in response to the Government Paperwork Elimination Act (GPEA). This act requires that, when practicable, Federal agencies use electronic forms, electronic filing, and electronic signatures to conduct official business with the public by 2003. In doing this, agencies will create records with business, legal and, in some cases, historical value. This guidance focuses on records management issues involving records that have been created using electronic signature technology. The guidance uses similar vocabulary as 21 CFR Part 11and addresses some of the same points. Therefore it is a good document to read for part 11 implementation.
