Consent Decree

About Terumo Cardiovascular Systems’ Consent Decree

On March 29, 2011, Terumo Cardiovascular Systems (Terumo CVS) entered into a consent decree with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to address improvements to the Quality System at its Ann Arbor, Michigan, facility.

On June 8, 2016, Terumo CVS received notice from the FDA that it had successfully completed the final phase of its work plan to remediate all products manufactured or distributed from the Ann Arbor, Michigan, facility. As a result, all shipping restrictions imposed as a term of the 2011 consent decree were lifted.

With restrictions lifted, Terumo CVS will fully exit the consent decree after five years of surveillance inspections that demonstrate sustained compliance.
