CAPA is a common sense Quality improvement subsystem that has been build into this gigantic monster by folks in the medical device Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries.The acronym CAPA stands for Corrective Action and Preventive Action.Nearly everybody in these industries understands what Corrective Action is.It is the Preventive part of CAPA that they have issues with.This month we are devoting the entire blog to CAPA.The idea is to nullify the misconception and myths about in an interactive way.
