Abstract: Practice of complementary therapies has grown globally. Use of indigenous drugs from plant origin forms a major part of such therapies. Increased demand of medicinal plants and related products is an opportunity sector for Indian trade and commerce. Widespread and growing use of botanicals has created public health challenges globally in terms of quality, safety and efficacy. Regulatory authorities of different countries have contributed in developing guiding principles addressing issues related to these aspects of botanical medicine. This review discusses various regulatory issues related to quality of botanicals.
