Why Should You Attend:

Deviations have been in the top five of all FDA (and other regulators) citations for more than twenty-five years. Regulators consistently cite firms for poor investigations and failure to identify and eliminate root causes. Additionally, it is estimated that each deviation currently costs more than 10,000 USD to investigate and manage without a noticeable return on investment for this expenditure as the deviations routinely recur. This webinar will:

  • Provide Basic Understanding for why we do investigations
  • Learn how and when to start an investigation
  • Become familiar with the tools for proficient data gathering
  • Be able to determine the right type of root causes
  • Describe Corrective Actions and Preventive Actions process
  • Describe the primary goals for a good system

For nearly 25 years, FDA and other regulators have cited failure in problem investigation systems as amongst the top 5 of all observations issued.

Instead of continuing to pour time and money into failed approaches, attend this detailed training for principal investigators to learn techniques and tools that allow you to perform much better investigations. The discussions will ensure the documentation you generate reflects the work that was accomplished in a manner that clearly demonstrates a thorough investigation, the scope was sufficiently broad and ultimately that problems are eliminated such that they do not recur.
