The Corrective and Preventive Action also referred to as CAPA is a very important integral part of any quality management system for pharmaceutical industries. Having an effective CAPA ensures that your company or organization is constantly working towards reducing the failures in the production, weakness, or testing of drugs and digging deeper for investigating the root causes and problems and then learning and improving them from these causes. The corrective and preventive actions empower the organization to correct the existing nonconformity of product and quality issues and then preventing the occurrence of the problem. If the FDA auditor is not satisfied with your quality management system (QMS) to manage CAPA then as an organization owner, it may cost you with a penalty and you may receive a warning letter.
The perception about CAPA differs from company to company; some think CAPA as some kind of task given to them to complete in order to stay compliant, while others look at CAPA as a number based metric that needs to be reduced immediately. But you need to know that CAPA is actually used to effectively manage the complete lifecycle and in simple words, it is also defined as a system which provides the tools for the complete evaluation, identification and investigation of a deviation. CAPA empowers quality management system (QMS) to be self-correcting and the tools are used to determine, implement and check the effectiveness of a resolution.
