REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS

Regulatory requirements may be different in different countries As a general rule, traditional experience which means that long-term use as well as the medical, historical and ethnological background are well recorded, should be taken into account WHO Guidelines for the Assessment of Herbal Medicine* should be consulted for the registration of herbal medicine products

* Guidelines for the assessment of herbal medicine programme on traditional medicine Geneva World Health Organization, document, 1991 (WHO/TRM/91,4)
