RCHM

The Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine was set up in 1987 to regulate the practice of Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) in the UK and has over 450 members.
.
We aim to set and maintain high standards in Chinese herbal medicine. Members must have a degree in Chinese herbal medicine, or a qualification that is equivalent to a degree. In addition, members adhere to a Code of Ethics and have full professional insurance.

The Register is a member of the European Herbal & Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association (EHTPA), an umbrella organisation that for over a decade has called for statutory regulation (SR) for herbal medicine in the UK.

• To provide information to members of the public seeking a properly qualified practitioner who is bound by Codes of Ethics and Good Practice and who has full professional insurance.
• To assist in setting the criteria for the practice and teaching of Chinese Herbal Medicine within the UK.
• To work with the governments of Britain and Europe towards the regulation of practitioners and the control of the quality of herbs sold in the UK.
• To protect the rights of the qualified practitioner to have access to the herbs needed to treat patients.
• To work with consumer and patient organisations to ensure the safety of the public.
• To work with the suppliers of Chinese herbs to ensure the authenticity and quality of the herbs available.
