Learn to Investigate and Write Robust Deviation Investigations and Eliminate 483 Observations

Deviation investigations are a 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 ensure that the firm is focusing on the real problem, so that  the proper corrective and preventative actions can subsequently begin.

Join this session, where expert speaker Danielle DeLucy will help you understand how to use root cause analysis tools and corrective and preventive action (CAPA) plans to successfully resolve deviations and non-conformances. The session will help you investigate and write robust deviation investigations.
