Email correspondence in VICH GCP studies
Reply to Thread
Email correspondence in VICH GCP studies. We normally sign and date all correspondence including emails. It has recently been questioned whether there is a need to sign and date these emails as each email has a record of the date/time, author and to whom it was sent to. I would like to know what is the standard practice used by others. Thank you.
I would always advise signing and dating print out of study related e-mail correspondence. E-mail is open to intentional and unintentional manipulations, potentially fraud. As QA there is a requirement to see responsibility taken for the authentication of the original posting to the recipient.
