Rebooting Your CAPA
Saturday, February 7, 2015
Corrective and preventive action (CAPA) investigations could reveal problems that might take months to fix properly. Perhaps they will reveal the need to hire additional employees, buy new equipment, install new systems, or perform other time-consuming tasks to correct the issue.
While this is perfectly acceptable, organizations must clearly define how long each phase of their CAPA will take, provide appropriate rationales for activities that will take a long time to implement, and explain what to do if your plans go beyond the specified timeframe.
