Transcript of CAPA
When a CAPA is adequately developed it will help to prevent further nonconformities (deviations from occurring). 2
This is done by: 2
Developing a strict basis of investigating nonconformities
Developing a corrective action to prevent a reoccurrence
Developing a method to properly document that the corrective action put in place is indeed effective
CAPA (21 CFR 820.100)
Corrective Actions are reactive actions that are essentially procedures created to help get rid of the root cause of the nonconformity and to prevent it from happening again. 2
Preventive Actions are proactive actions that are essentially procedures created to help diminish the potential cause of the nonconformity and help prevent it from happening again in the future. 2
These actions help to prevent nonconformities or deviations from occurring with the use of previously planned, accepted, and approved actions in place. 2
These actions also help to eliminate the possibility of the reoccurrence of deviations and nonconformities. 2
There are 7 steps to the CAPA Process: 2
Discovery of deviation
Documentation of events
Immediate corrective action
Investigation of the root cause
Effectiveness of evaluation
Corrective and Preventive Actions
