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.
