Why Should You Attend :

The most important area audited by the FDA is CAPA. One of the most cited 483 is failure to resolve the key underlying problem and close out CAPA documents in a timely manner -- basically an inability to define, locate and resolve the basic problem(s) or root cause(s). Root Cause Analysis is key to many important cGMP activities -- Non-conformance / OOS resolution, Complaint Handling, Adverse Event Reporting and Resolution, Verification and Validation activities, CAPA, Audit corrective and preventive actions -- the list goes on.

Regular use of a few simple but powerful tools can contribute greatly to reduction of product liability, cost reduction efforts, less chance of recalls, and an improved bottom line.
