This webinar will help attendees investigate and write robust deviation investigations.  This webinar will focus on how to avoid the pitfalls that may occur during FDA inspections and help eliminate 483 observations. 

Why should you attend

Deviation investigations are a very common topic to be reviewed during FDA investigations.  Ensuring the firm has robust and complete write-ups of these situations is key to a successful audit.  Having inadequate investigations could potentially cause some severe issues for the company and may sometimes result in warning letters, consent decrees or recalls.

Proper root cause analysis of the issue is necessary to make sure that the firm is focusing on the real problem and subsequently the proper corrective and preventative actions can begin.

This webinar will help attendees understand how to use root cause analysis tools and CAPA plans to successfully resolve deviations and non-conformances.
