IDHub & Manufacturing Industry Compliance


If your organization or business operates in the US manufacturing industry then there are certain regulations and compliances that you must adhere to. These regulations can differ based on the specific sector or product type that you manufacture, however, there are certain regulations which is usually common across the manufacturing industry and they are as follows:

  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Besides these common regulations, your organisation might have to confirm additional regulations such as:

  • General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)

These regulations basically cover the data privacy concerns of your customer and this is particularly important if your business has transactions and data which are sensitive in nature like that of your clients, customers and vendors.

Role of IDHub in confirming regulatory requirements

Your Organisations will be able to manage and regulate access to your physical and digital resources using IDHub since this will provide a framework of rules, technology, and procedures for you to create and enforce user access, authentication, authorization, and identity management rules across several target systems. Your Manufacturing businesses will be able to comply with OSHA, EPA, and FDA standards by adopting and deploying IDHub to guarantee that only authorised workers have access to sensitive data, systems, and equipment.

How does IDHub Help in conforming to OSHA & EPA regulations?

OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) and other laws for instance Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and the Clean Air Act (CAA) are some of the crucial laws that your business must follow. According to this standard, your businesses must keep precise records of the hazardous material inventory, guarantee that staff members have received training on how to handle and utilise dangerous compounds and give staff members access to Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs).

You have to regulate access to these documents and make sure that only authorised staff can read and alter them, which is where IDHub comes into play. By Deploying IDHub your organization can prevent unauthorised access to hazardous material records and lower the risk of accidents and injuries by limiting access to these documents.

How does IDHub Help in conforming to FDA regulations?

Your manufacturing enterprises must also adhere to FDA standards along with OSHA and EPA requirements. To assure the safety and effectiveness of food, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices, the FDA oversees their production, processing, and packaging. Your companies must keep accurate records of their production processes, equipment calibrations, and quality control methods, according to the FDA guidelines. Your businesses will have to regulate access to these processes and data while also making sure that only authorised staff can read and alter them with the use of an IDHub. By preventing access to production information, you will be able to lower the risk of product flaws and recalls by limiting access to such information, which guarantees conformance to regulations laid down by FDA.

How does IDHub help you to adhere to GDPR regulations?

IDHub will help your business to control user privileges and accounts across the board in different target systems and applications. Some of the instances of your target systems can be, ERP systems, manufacturing execution systems (MES), and laboratory information management systems (LIMS).

With IDHub you will be able to create and revoke accounts in these target systems. You can also do a comprehensive audit of your user’s access to the target systems with the help of our certification feature. Thus you not only get complete control of user access to various target applications; you essentially ensure that only authorized users have the right kind of access to your target systems. Ultimately this will help you to mitigate the risk of data breaches and cyber security attacks which is critically important if you have to comply with GDPR and CCPA regulations.

Moreover, IDHubs can enable manufacturing companies to implement role-based access control (RBAC) system, which assigns permissions based on user roles. With an RBAC system, companies can define roles based on job functions and assign permissions accordingly. For example, a production supervisor may have access to MES systems, while a laboratory technician may have access to LIMS systems. By implementing an RBAC system, your organization will be able to ensure that users have access to systems and data based on their specific responsibilities in your organization. This will help your organization to reduce the risk of data breaches and other security incidents, which can result in regulatory fines and other penalties.

Overall, IDHub will play an indispensable role in helping your organizations operating in the US manufacturing industry to meet your regulatory compliance requirements, while also improving your overall security posture and protecting highly secure and sensitive information and resources.
