Training Overview

In today’s highly regulated pharma, biotech, device and animal health industries, it is essential to use the most efficient processes and ensure compliance with an active corrective and preventive action (CAPA) and RCA system.

This course will cover CAPA and RCA methodology and documentation, diagnosing process improvement, developing options for process improvement and CAPA and RCA planning and implementation in practice of improvements.

Root cause analysis is the process by which we discover the underlying cause of difficulties in a business process or processes. Often businesses waste a great of money in fixing the symptoms of a problem, rather than the problem itself.

CAPA and RCA procedures are a frequent focus of regulatory inspectors and evidence will be required at any future inspections that CAPA actions have been implemented.

In this two-day course, participants learn to apply a systematic end-to-end process for analysing problems to uncover their root cause.
