Impact of new herb law
Impact of new herb law from 1st May 2011:
The new EU herb law bans importing of "unlicensed" Chinese herbal medicine from 1st May 2011. We are entitled to "sell through" stock. But once we run out of stock, we cannot get any new supplies. We have very sadly sold out some of our herbals and cannot be replaced. As a result, the demand will exceed the supply, and the prices of herbals will be rising!
This new herb law ingores the fact that Chinese herbal medicine are very safe and all of these products we sell were manufactured by GMP (Good manufacturing practice) certified manufacturers, these manufacturers have licences issued and regulated by China state food and drug administration. Some manufacturers are also received GMP Certificate from the Therapeutic Goods Administration (“TGA”) of Australia, or has NSF International certificate (to meet or exceed the US FDA's GMP guidelines) (see details at "Quality Assurance") .
