3.8 Registration system for herbal medicines

Countries were asked whether a registration system exists for herbal medicines; 139 countries answered the question. Eighty five countries (61%) reported that they have registration systems for herbal medicines (Figure 33).

The countries with registration systems for herbal medicines are indicated on the map below (Map 7).

If countries reported having a registration system for herbal medicines, they were asked to provide the number of herbal medicines registered. Sixty-four countries provided a number for registered herbal medicines (Figure 34). The reported number of registered herbal medicines ranged from 0 to 10 000. Several countries could not provide a number of registered medicines or indicated that no medicines were yet registered, as the systems had recently been implemented.
