Complaints Handling

Manage the investigation and resolution of regulatory complaints

ETQ Reliance’s Complaints Handling application gives life sciences companies comprehensive control over how customer complaints are handled, recorded, reported and tracked in compliance with FDA guidelines.

With a comprehensive complaints management system in place, companies can leverage complete and accurate information to track all parties involved in the complaint (customers, suppliers, specific products, partners) and then use that data to mitigate and prevent future complaints. 

  • Provide an electronic form for Electronic Medical Device Reporting (eMDR)
  • ETQ complies with Health Level 7 (HL7) individual Case Safety Report (ICSR) option for eMDR
  • Track timeliness of each complaint using flexible workflow rules
  • Report on trends based on user-definable conditions 


Integrates with: 

  • ETQ Reliance’s electronic submission gateway for medical device reporting
  • ETQ Reliance’s risk management tools to quantify the risk of any complaint
  • ETQ Reiance’s Corrective Action and Preventive Action (CAPA) and Supplier Corrective Action Request (SCAR)

Automated eSignature Tracking

21 CFR Part 11 requirements including e-signature

The electronic signature capture requirements of companies in the life sciences world can be complicated and difficult to manage, track and report. ETQ’s 21 CFR Part 11 and Annex 11 compliant software with built-in audit trails and validation support is a closed system that allows companies to automate the process of associating an individual’s secure electronic signature with every step in the electronic records keeping process.

  • Capture users’ electronic signatures for each step in the compliance management process
  • Securely bind the authenticated user’s electronic signature automatically
  • Ensure that the user has signed onto the system and exposed their signature via the forced authentication process
  • Require authentication to access any part of the system
  • Employ LDAP authentication and internal authentication with configurable password expiration dates and requirement to change passwords on first login
  • Record all changes through ETQ Audit Trail capability
