This clearly indicates that identified CAPA is not effective. Please again investigate in to the matter and find out why is CAPA not effective. And accordingly you can revise CAPA and implement. If required you may have to do major changes in Quality System, relevant SOP or change in the job responsibilities of the operator or the person who is repeatadly deviating from the established procedure. Only retraining and councelling may not be enough.
CAPAs must be identified and implemented very carefully.


Very correct answer: recurrence of the incident proves ineffectiveness of your CAPA

Hi everyone! I am new here (just registered myself) and need help :slight_smile: I am writing my master thesis which is about audits in Clinical trials and would like to ask you :slight_smile: 1. If you have some good examples for audit findings-root cause-CAPA plan-successful or unsuccessful-both will be useful for me as I would like to give several examples for my practical part. And 2) I would like to summarize most common audit findings-gnerally from system audits and site audits :slight_smile: I will appreciate you help. My email is [email protected] (no confidential information is needed :slight_smile:
