    Herbal medicines that are safe, ethical and sustainable

    Under the RCHM Approved Supplier's Scheme, we audit herbal suppliers to ensure that they provide herbal medicines under the highest UK standards. The RCHM is also committed to sustainability and regularly introduces new measures to reduce the environmental impact of herbal medicine production and supply.

    RCHM Approved Suppliers only supply herbal medicines:

    • that are legal for sale in the UK
    • that are checked for safety and contamination
    • that comply with international law governing the sale of endangered species
    • that are botanical ingredients (UK law forbids the sale of animal products)
