This webinar will help you establish an efficient and effective CAPA (Corrective and Preventive Action) process leading to improved quality and compliance for your company. You’ll learn how to streamline and monitor your process to ensure compliance and improved performance. If your CAPA process needs a CAPA, this webinar is for you. We will discuss requirements, the myths, and the challenges of managing CAPAs so you can avoid common problems and pitfalls.

We’ll discuss best practices so you can start off on the right foot and always be prepared for an inspection.

Why should you Attend: CAPA is the corner stone of an effective Quality Management System. Yet, it frequently perceived as a burdensome and bureaucratic exercise. Many companies struggle to establish and maintain a CAPA program that is efficient and effective. An ineffective CAPA System leads to disastrous consequences such as medical device reports, recalls, 483s, and warning letters.
