How FDA trains its Investigators to Review CAPA and How should you prepare

The most common finding during any FDA inspection deals with issues that impact, are the result of, or are centered in the organization’s CAPA system. Invariably, FDA inspectors will spend a great deal of their time when visiting your facility sorting through your CAPA documents, in detail. It is imperative to understand what FDA inspectors specifically look for when reviewing your CAPA system so that measures may be taken to establish a compliant ongoing CAPA system that that will withstand FDA scrutiny. It is also a goal of this webinar to provide you with the information that you can use to evaluate your own CAPA process as an investigator would.

Why You Should Attend:
