6.2 Examination

To facilitate the process for registration of practitioners, a national examination system could be created. The examination could be organized by health authorities or an independent body under the supervision of the Government. The establishment of a national examination system will promote efforts in upgrading the training on herbal medicine and ensuring that certain standards of practice are met.
