Simplify compliance.

DocuSign offers modules to support your compliance with the electronic signature practices set forth in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s 21 CFR Part 11. Our core Part 11 module includes additional Part 11-specific functionality for authentication, reason for signature, and signature manifestation. These capabilities help you comply with regulations while using eSignature to make executing agreements faster, more cost-efficient, and more convenient for everyone involved. Our Life Sciences Modules also enable compliance with regional standards like Annex 11.
