1 Hour and 30 Minute Video | Lonnie Lassmann, KCI

The FDA is heavily focused on enforcing Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) System requirements having recently cited numerous manufacturers for failure to maintain these practices. In today’s highly regulated environment, sufficient CAPA data and documentation processes that demonstrate product quality and safety are a top priority for quality teams; however, many continue to struggle with determining which issues should or should not be elevated to CAPA status. A recent industry study conducted by BSI reviewed FDA CAPA audits and found that quality departments often put too much emphasis on issues that don’t qualify for CAPA and ultimately struggle to focus on the “preventive” measures. In order to ensure product safety and effectiveness, it is critical for manufacturers to operate a CAPA system that will continuously monitor and improve quality throughout the product life cycle.
