ABSTRACT In the European Union, the manufacturing of and the trade in herbs and dietary supplements are regulated by pharmaceutical and food laws. While dietary supplements are subject to food laws, provisions dealing with herbs are primarily to be found in pharmaceutical regulations. Having a basic understanding of the complexities of this regulatory environment can help clinicians and their patients understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented by EU herbs and supplements and may help inform regulatory practices in other countries struggling to ensure quality and safety of such products.
