Here is the link to the FDA guidance. Note that it does not differenti=
ate between SAS files or any other software. Nor does exclude analyses=
 that are not predefined. I think this is something we will all need t=
o deal with. thanks mike

Re: [NMusers] 21 CFR Part 11 Hello Steve, =
   It seems like NONMEM jobs are not part 11 compliant, are they? Al=
so, PK analyses are exploratory and cannot be predefined. The FDA ask=
s for SAS files and NONMEM works with text files. This also makes Par=
t 11 less related. Thank you, Pavel -----=
