According to the FDA (as well as other regulators), CAPA management and lack of proper investigation of challenges is a top observation among companies in the industry. In this workshop, we will demonstrate by interactive case study sessions how to perform a proper investigation into a robust root cause analysis using industry standard tools, in a toolkit approach. Also, we will explore the challenges of proper CAPA planning and defining appropriate effectiveness checks to ensure these observations do not occur again and how to properly document what was performed. We will use some direct case studies from various FDA 483s to show real-life situations on how to apply our toolkit approach to avoid action by regulators and ensure compliance in your processes and company culture.
