Auditing is a critical function within a pharmaceutical and medical device company. It provides management with information about how effectively the company controls the quality of their processes and products. Auditors must perform their job competently in the audit report compliance to ensure their company’s compliance with USFDA GMP regulations and other quality standards like ISO, ICH. Audits also help to maintain these standards over time. If a company isn’t checking up on its processes on a regular basis, small issues may snowball into critical issues over time. Products will suffer as processes slip away from compliance.
CAPA(Corrective And Preventive Action) For Audit Report Compliance:
The CAPA system is the cornerstone of a Quality Management System, especially in the Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Industry, and the backbone and driver for Quality improvements. The CAPA system feeds the Quality System to improve processes, procedures, organization and business in a structured, well-documented and actionable way.
Operon Strategist audits the existing CAPA system of clients determines how effective it is in identifying & correcting quality problems. An effective corrective & preventive action system enables easy collection & analysis of information. This information is used to identify & investigate existing; potential product & quality problems.
There is a strong link between QUALITY and OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE, as a well-established CAPA system will have its benefits for the business, for instance:
- Improved safety and security
- Improved customer satisfaction
- Increased productivity
- Infrastructure efficiency gains
- Better product quality
- Avoiding the cost of regulatory non-compliance
The risk-based CAPA requirements demand a well-documented system that determines the root cause of non-conformances, system failures or process problems, corrects the problems, and prevents them from recurring. The documentation must identify why something went wrong—or why it may go wrong—and what has been done to make sure it does not happen again.
In an industry where patients’ health and wellness depends on products functioning properly, an organization cannot afford any weak areas that could lead to nonconformities or lower quality products.
