Edwin Waldbusser

   This webinar will explain the CAPA process from information gathering through MDR and Recall decision making to final CAPA closing. Post closing effectiveness evaluation is required and will be explained. Preventative Action is often neglected and will be discussed. Post distribution product monitoring including customer surveys will be explained. Integration of manufacturing non conformaties with the CAPA program will be discussed.

Why :

   Complaint handling and Corrective and Preventative Action (CAPA) is considered by the FDA to be two of the most important areas to assure medical device safety and efficacy. They are in the top five areas where FDA finds problems during inspections and issues 483’s. Medical device developers must understand the complicated Complaint and CAPA process and have a strong CAPA program. A key understanding is striking a balance between too many CAPA’s (strangles the system) and too few (problem areas escape fixing). 

   After this course, you will be able to construct and maintain a strong but manageable Complaint/ CAPA system that will satisfy FDA requirements 

   Templates of the Complaint Evaluation form and the Corrective Action Plan will be handouts 

   How using the same logic as the auditors can help you be in a state of constant readiness.
