On 12 May 2014, the EMA’s HMPC (Committee on Herbal Medicinal Products) published the Questions & Answers document on (traditional) herbal medicinal products. The document also addresses herbal medicinal products which don’t have a European tradition.

The Q&A document contains Questions & Answers about the following topics:

  • Regulation of herbal medicinal products in the EU ( (Q&A 1 – 7)
  • Specific provisions for traditional herbal medicinal products (Q&A 8 – 17)
  • Type and role of monographs in the European framework (Q&A 18 – 21)
  • Advice, procedures and relevant institutions (Q&A 22 – 24)

The table included in the answer to question 24 is particularly interesting. There you can find which authorities are responsible for individual decisions.
