FDA to Regulate Oriental Medicines

Korea Daily, news report, Posted: Jan 21, 2009



NEW YORK The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s plan to
regulate herbal medicines prepared in Oriental medical establishments
worries local Korean practitioners of Oriental medicine, reports the
Korea Daily. In June of last year FDA decided that the regulations of Good Manufacturing Practices will apply to dietary supplements effect June 2010. According to the newspaper, GMPs specify all the methods and processes
necessary to ensure proper processing, manufacture, labeling, and
storage of food and drug ingredients and finished products. Dietary
supplements such as herbal medicines prescribed in Oriental medical
clinics, vitamins and minerals are classified as foods, not drugs,
under federal law. Local Oriental medicine practitioners told the
newspaper that to comply with the new rule they need to purchase
expensive equipment and it will further strain the financial
conditions of most businesses, which are mom-and-pop stores.
