  • Regulatory Affairs 
  • R&D
  • Quality Assurance

Course Description
Most organizations have procedures for implementing corrective and preventive actions, but many do not have an effective methodology to actually investigate to find the root cause. As a result the investigation is often careless, unsuccessful, and costly. Root Cause Investigation for CAPA is a proven methodology to investigate and identify the root cause when there has been a shift in the performance of a product, machine, equipment, work process, or system. The methodology identifies the change (or changes) that has occurred so that the change can be eliminated and the performance can return to its previous level. It is ideal for investigating an increase in:
  • Product or service defect levels
  • Customer complaints
  • Negative patient reactions with the product
  • Manufacturing scrap or rework
  • Equipment or process aberrations
  • Any performance change where a CAPA investigation
    is required

In this exciting and team-based seminar you will be challenged to apply the methodology and tools on real case studies. This will prepare you to confidently conduct successful investigations immediately upon returning to work.
