CAPA compliance traps more devicemakers than any other FDA violation, but it needn't be that way. Discover how to escape the CAPA trap.

Years after CAPA became a compliance standard for device manufacturers, its complexities still bedevil manufacturers. CAPA remains the No. 1 violation cited in medical device audits.

CAPA regulations are complex and can be confusing. What the FDA wants, despite being described in the QSIT, is still a mystery to many. Competitors rarely share compliance success stories. And as an FDA investigator pours over SOPs and case files, who knows what he or she will find?

Ever wonder what the gold standard in device CAPA management looks like? We'll show attendees.

Be on hand on Thursday, Dec. 19, when a panel of experts spend a day taking CAPA apart … then putting it back together — the right way.

Attendees will get the inside view from a former FDA inspector. With 28 years inspecting premises like yours, Ken Miles knows FDA's playbook inside and out. What the agency tells investigators to look for in CAPA files? Which seemingly small mistakes can balloon into catastrophes? Mr. Miles has seen it all … and now he shares it all.

Then hear Abbott Labs' real-life CAPA compliance efforts from Abbott's former point-person, Sherry Schiller. What worked? What didn't? Abbott's successes (and failures) are leverage to enhance CAPA programs.

Then it's on to nuts and bolts, with roll-up-your-sleeves compliance sessions featuring Jason Spiegler, Director of Strategic Market Development at Camstar Systems and Dan O'Leary of Ombu Enterprises.  Attendees will dig into the nitty-gritty of CAPA compliance … learn how to secure executive buy-in for developing state-of-the-art CAPA programs … and discover specific, proven ways to boost profits via an improved CAPA program.

Want specifics? Here's a laundry list:

  • What the FDA inspector looks for: the insider's checklist
  • Red flags that trigger a more thorough inspection
  • Key procedures that ensure CAPA success
  • Specific value metrics medical device manufacturers have benefited from after implementing improved CAPA compliance programs  
  • How to develop a truly proactive CAPA program
  • Making strategic investments in CAPA without breaking the bank
  • Getting executive buy-in for instilling a new proactive CAPA philosophy
  • How Abbott Labs confronted difficult CAPA challenges
  • How Abbott bolstered its compliance capabilities
  • And much more!
