CAPA stands for Corrective Actions and Preventive Actions. As the name suggests it consists of two sets of actions:
1. Corrective actions
Changes brought about in operation, documentation, and systems to correct undesirable situations that hinder the workflow or reduce efficiency fall under this category. They are implemented in response to customer complaints, issues found during audits, and any instance of non-compliance.
2. Preventive actions
Closely linked to the former set, preventive actions are those that are adopted by an organization to prevent the recurrence of undesirable situations once the root cause(s) has been identified.
The CAPA management system is developed by a team of quality management professionals, and then systematically implemented and tested on your system to ensure optimal efficiency and compliance at all times.
In most industries such as medical, pharmaceutical, and food and beverages, CAPA needs to be a part of their quality management system.
But every business has its own unique set of needs and quality standards to be met. So, how can you implement a CAPA-based quality management system for your business?
