CAPA Solutions

Corrective and Preventative Actions (CAPAs) provide essential improvements to your organization's processes.  They address and eliminate problems and other undersirable situations that have occurred or might occur.  CAPAs are one essential part of the GxP environment, and every person associated with the quality delivery of an organization's finished product must be cognizant of the implications of not meeting the requirements of regulators and customers who demand supreme quality.


The puzzle diagram represents a simplified process model of the FDA Quality System Regulations, 21 CFR Part 820. This is reproduced by permission of J. Jariwala, Compliance Officer, FDA CDRH (2013), who presented the diagram at the Sustaining Effective CAPA Systems Conference in July 2013, San Diego, CA.




The pages within the CAPA solution section of this web site are provided to educate readers about the elements and requirements around the provision of a CAPA system that is part of an overall quality management environment.  CAPA facilitates issue / signal management and provides clear evidence that quality is handled proactively, meeting the requirements of regulatory bodies in the USA, EU, and Asia. Each section also highlights the ways in which the ExtraView Enterprise product makes a difference. You may click on a jigsaw puzzle piece for more information, or use the navigation at the bottom of the page to find out more about the different CAPA phases.
