Deviations and Non-conformances are enviable. The key is utilizing those events as an avenue to improve the overall quality system. Thorough Root Cause Analysis is essential to correcting and preventing issues. RCA is a systematic approach that utilizes quality tools to objectively identify factors that have resulted in or could contribute to a deviation.
Once the RCA identifies the factors that caused the event, proper generation of CAPA actions is critical to maintaining a healthy quality system. The regulatory agencies fully expect to see documented root cause analysis that resulted in both corrective and preventative actions.
