Why You Should Attend

Sustaining Effective CAPA Systems - 2nd Annual

Maintaining a robust corrective and preventative action (CAPA) system remains one of the top priorities of medical device and pharmaceutical companies. Not only is such a system needed to keep up with increasing regulatory scrutiny, but the implementation and documenting of CAPAs is an essential step in ensuring products are upheld to a level of quality that is necessary to remain competitive in the industry.

The 2nd Annual Sustaining Effective CAPA Systems Conference offers timely, innovative insight from leaders within the medical device and pharmaceutical industries – all with a level of detail and clarity that comes from firsthand experience. Attendees will leave well prepared to ensure their CAPAs are closed in a timely and prioritized way, while also being able to assess the effectiveness of the CAPA system as a whole and any individual corrective or preventative actions that arise. Attendees will also explore the intersection of nonconformities and CAPAs and define the entry point into a CAPA to maintain efficiency and get the most out of the enterprise‘s systems.

Heads of CAPA, Quality Assurance and Regulatory Affairs from the medical device and pharmaceutical industries will interact with speakers and their peers in a classroom-style setting that fosters both audience interaction and engagement. Seating for this conference is limited to maintain an intimate educational environment that will cultivate the knowledge and experience of all participants.
