Background: In the EU, the boundaries between herbal medicinal products (HMPs) and dietary supplements of herbal origin (botanicals) are discussed politically. In this context the use of health claims based on traditional use was proposed for botanicals.
Aims: As this proposal would basically change the regulation of herbal products in the EU,.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
