CAPAs are defined as Corrective and Preventative Actions.

Typically, a Corrective Action is used to identify a specific problem that already exists, and create a process to correct it. In contrast, a Preventative Action is used to identify a potential problem that hasn’t yet occurred, and create a process to prevent it happening.
