This 60 minute Webinar on CAPA training will give you insights into FDA’s new focus on CAPA effectiveness, and how to effectively manage your CAPA program to avoid an FDA warning letter or 483.

Why Attend?

The most important area audited by the FDA is CAPA. FDA views this system as an indicator for the overall effectiveness of the firm’s Quality Management System. In recent years, CAPA has been an increasingly common finding on FDA 483 forms.

Attending this course will enable you understand FDA’s expectations regarding CAPA effectiveness, learn to demonstrate that Corrective Actions do not adversely affect the finished device quality, and provide a road-map to demonstrate that your CAPA program verifies the effectiveness of CAPA actions.

Now is the time to assess and improve your CAPA system so that you stay ahead of FDA expectations and prevent a 483 finding that could have been avoided. This webinar will present simple but powerful tools, with real world examples how companies manage CAPA systems.
