CAPA, Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis - FDA Expectations
This 90-minute webinar will show how you can implement a closed-loop CAPA system that meets CGMP requirements and U.S. FDA expectations. You will learn simple, but powerful, tools and methods that you can use regularly and systematically to define and resolve root causes, not just symptoms.
