Electronic Signatures for FDA regulated documents using SignNow
(Updated March 16, 2022)
The university’s E-signature Service, SignNow, has a version that is compliant with FDA regulations at 21 CFR Part 11. If you use SignNow to obtain signatures for FDA-regulated documents and don’t see this logo when logged into your SignNow account, please contact the ITS Service Center and let the E-Signature team know that your SignNow account needs to be updated. Research studies that are not FDA-regulated may use the standard version of SignNow to document consent or assent electronically.
