A proposed guide from ASTM International’s cannabis committee D37 will help organizations in the industry to develop their own internal Corrective Action/Preventive Action (CAPA) processes and procedures.
CAPA systems are a key part of quality management. Specifically, CAPA systems focus on investigating, understanding, and correcting discrepancies to prevent recurrence of issues, which include laboratory testing failures, product complaints, and product non-conformances.
CAPA systems support formalized quality management systems which document processes, procedures, and responsibilities for achieving key objectives. These systems also help to coordinate and direct an organization’s activities to meet customer and regulatory requirements.
In June, more than 100 of the committee’s members met in San Diego, California, as part of the regularly scheduled standards development meetings.

The cannabis committee will next meet on January 27-29 in Texas.
