Chinese Patent Medicine
Over ten years, several poisoning incidents of Chinese medicine were reported. One of the major reasons was due to the poor quality and the wrong identification of the herb leading to the inappropriate treatment. Under the Chinese Medicine Ordinance, it is necessary to implement regulatory measures for Chinese medicine in order to ensure the safety and quality of CMM in protection of public health. .
In view of this, we provide testing and certification service for Chinese herbal enterprises in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, reliable reference chemical standards could be used to establish the quality control of traditional Chinese medicine. By providing the verification service, we aim to serve as a bridge of communication between academia and industry as well as enhance consumers’ confidence in Chinese medicine.
Centre for Chinese Medicine Research and Development has assisted in verification of chemical standards and testing methods for "Hong Kong Chinese Materia Medica Standards (HKCMMS).
