Corrective Action Preventive Action (CAPA)

Quality events are inevitable, no matter how much care is taken to avoid them. As a critical part of a quality management system, CAPA identifies and addresses the root causes of high-risk quality issues and helps to limit the resulting business impact, both immediately and in the future.

Improving quality and maintaining compliance depends upon robust CAPA management. The purpose of CAPA is twofold: to determine why quality events such as nonconformances and deviations have occurred, and to prevent them from happening again. By nature, CAPA processes span various quality systems and the data they produce. A digital and integrated CAPA solution allows companies to connect key quality channels and downstream processes throughout the entire product life cycle. The result is streamlined and thorough CAPA management for better product quality, safety and overall compliance.
