WHAT: Sparta Systems, Inc., the maker of TrackWise® quality management software and the market leader in enterprise quality and compliance management solutions, today announced that it will join representatives from leading life sciences organizations and regulators in an interactive session at the 2011 Association of Food and Drug Officials Conference, June 18-22, in Plano, Texas. The session, titled “Writing CAPA Procedures & Documents to Reflect Compliance Initiatives,” will bring together representatives from Ortho Clinical Diagnostics (a Johnson and Johnson company), Kinetic Concepts, Inc., and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), for a moderated discussion on best practices in initiating corrective and preventive actions (CAPAs) in their manufacturing and regulatory compliance efforts.

Organizations in highly regulated industries face stringent regulations for tracking and reporting on incidents that occur in the manufacturing process, and are required to institute actions to both correct issues and take the steps necessary to ensure that the incidents to not arise again. “Writing CAPA Procedures & Documents to Reflect Compliance Initiatives” will arm attendees with the tools they need to determine the threshold of when to initiate a CAPA procedure, and provide instruction on how to accurately classify specific actions as corrective and preventive. Ultimately, those who attend the presentation will walk away with a new understanding of when, how and why to issue CAPAs in their own organizations, to ensure compliance with both current and future regulatory guidelines.
