Join us for a Masterclass 101 on March 04 for a discussion of the webinar 


Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA) is a system of quality procedures required to eliminate the causes of an existing nonconformity and to prevent recurrence of nonconforming product, processes, and other quality problems

Do you know Deviations and Non-conformances are enviable. The key is utilizing those events as an avenue to improve the overall quality system. Thorough Root Cause Analysis is essential to correcting and preventing issues. RCA is a systematic approach that utilizes quality tools to objectively identify factors that have resulted in or could contribute to a deviation.

Once the RCA identifies the factors that caused the event, proper generation of CAPA actions is critical to maintaining a healthy quality system. The regulatory agencies fully expect to see documented root cause analysis that resulted in both corrective and preventative actions.

Q&A from the last session

Why is it important to determine a root cause?

It is important because you are going to use that root cause to put corrective action that would personally prevent that from happening again. So root cause is very important in understanding the process and also helps in order to prevent it from happening again in future.
