This CAPA audit training will discuss how auditors need to be tough in evaluating corrective action so that it will help in removing nonconformity in the future rather than only fixing the problem and not removing the cause.

Why Should You Attend:

Do you seem to be reporting some of the same nonconformities from audit to audit? Isn’t that frustrating? Why isn’t the auditee fixing the problems? It may be partly your fault. Accepting weak corrective actions will lead to repeat nonconformities. Auditors must get tough when evaluating corrective actions. If the action only fixes the problem and doesn’t remove the cause, don’t accept it. If you accept a weak solution, you’ll end up writing the same nonconformity in the future.

Why are organizations having a hard time taking effective corrective action? It may be they don’t understand how to perform root cause analysis. Or, it might be they simply view a request for corrective action as a distraction to be quickly dismissed so they can get back to work.

A common mistake is for the auditee is to say the root cause was “human error”. As a result, they attempt to correct the guilty person’s behavior instead of eliminating the real root cause. Unfortunately, auditors often compound the issue by attempting to conduct the follow-up audit too soon.

This session reviews the differences between containment, correction, corrective action, and preventive action. Common issues are identified and auditors are told to get tough on corrective actions. They must reject weak responses. If not, they’ll repeatedly report the same or closely related nonconformity.
