Read Frequently Asked Questions

This CAPA webinar provides a clear and simple explanation of corrective action and preventive action systems. It cuts through the confusion by explaining the technical definitions of correction, corrective action, and preventive action.

As part of their improvement activities, companies need effective Corrective and Preventive Action (CAPA) systems. To implement an effective system you must understand the requirements, including the difference between corrective action and preventive action.

This course provides the participant with a clear and simple explanation of corrective action and preventive action systems. It cuts through the confusion by explaining the technical definitions of correction, corrective action, and preventive action. By laying a clear foundation, the presentation offers a solid approach to system implementation.

In addition, correction and corrective action are often confused. Correction deals with eliminating a problem, while corrective action deals with eliminating the cause of a problem. This confusion can create difficulty in both audit programs and nonconforming material control.

These confusions can impact the systems, create endless discussions, and increase cost.

  • Failure to implement an effective system can waste resources, increase cost.
  • Systems to control and disposition nonconforming material have long cycle times when they confuse correction and corrective action.
  • Companies without good preventive action systems miss improvement opportunities.
  • Regulated industries have even more stringent requirements. In medical devices, for example, the FDA cites CAPA systems most often.

Learning objectives:

The participant will understand the difference among correction, corrective action, and preventive action. This understanding leads to more effective implementation.

Based on the ISO 9000 series, the participant will learn how to establish and measure processes in general and apply these methods to specific processes including: disposition of nonconforming material, correction (including audits), corrective action, and preventive action. At the conclusion the participant will be well versed in the terms and associated process implementation.
