CAPA definition: Corrective Actions and Preventive Actions

What is CAPA?

Corrective Action and Preventative Action tracking systems are essential for the development of any quality system. A CAPA process will capture improvement opportunities from any business process, assign responsibility to make the improvement and manage and track any actions. 

Many CAPA workflows often resemble an eight-step problem-solving process such as 8D.


It is a regulatory requirement that FDA / global regulatory inspectors and ISO auditors consider critical to any organization. When implemented properly, a CAPA system improves product quality and safety, increases customer satisfaction, and more importantly, ensures FDA and ISO compliance.
