Overview of the webinar

CAPA, Corrective and Preventive Action, is a major element of cGMP compliance, and one of the four key areas of a medical device QSIT inspection. CAPA is a key source of regulatory problems. The primary areas for CAPA focus. The roles of Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis – procedures and documentation. Allocation of scarce company resources for the greatest impact to product quality / safety. US and EU regulatory requirements.  Since the US FDA and the EU have repeatedly stated that the majority of quality and regulatory activities are or should be “risk based” – what this means, and how can this be implemented under CAPA. Internal and external complaints and CAPA.  Trending. vA pro-active CAPA system is a major proof to regulatory agencies of a company in compliance and control.

Why should you attend?

CAPA, Corrective and Preventive Action, is a major element of cGMP compliance, and key source of regulatory problems. How can companies allocate scarce resources to those activities that have the greatest impact to product quality / safety, minimize resources on minor issues, and still satisfy the regulatory agencies? Changing a company’s CAPA system to a true risk-based closed-loop system results in a redistribution of scarce resources to activities that have a higher payoff in terms of reduced liability, both civil and regulatory, and improved product function and safety
