Traditional Herbal Medicines Registration - Consumer Q&A Document

14 April 2011

For some time herbal medicines available in EU countries were sold outside of a regulated system. This meant that herbal medicines could be sold without having to show that they had acceptable safety or quality.

As a result, to protect the health of consumers the EU introduced the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive to allow for the regulation of what are known as ‘traditional herbal medicines’.

This document provides Irish consumers with information about this new legislation, why it is being introduced and how it might impact those who use herbal medicines.
