Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) are cornerstones of the Quality System for modern medical device and pharmaceutical companies. The FDA’s Quality
System Inspection Techniques Manual for example has CAPA as the starting point for onsite inspectors that will determine the other areas they will audit. During this presentation, Steve Beauchamp – Quality Director at Eversana – will describe the regulatory background for CAPA, how to meet inspector’s expectations, and how to structure a CAPA system that will work for your company without becoming a resource sink and an audit trap.
Attendees will learn about the background and application of a Corrective and Preventive Action system as an integral part of their overall Quality System, as well as how to integrate CAPA activities into their organization to address product and process issues to ensure safe, effective, and commercially successful products.
