A Note on Chinese Medicines and Chinese Medicine Practitioners

According to section 90(3)(a) of the Chinese Medicine Ordinance, a listed Chinese Medicine Practitioner (CMP) should comply with the professional Code of Practice compiled by the Chinese Medicine Practitioners Board. All CMPs are advised to acquaint themselves with "the Code of Practice for Listed Chinese Medicine Practitioners" and pay particular attention to the restrictions imposed on the promotion of a listed CMP (paragraph 6, Part 3 of the Code referred).

With regard to the practice of Chinese Medicines, the relevant subsidiary legislations and regulatory measures are now being formulated by the Chinese Medicines Council of Hong Kong (the Council). For more details about the regulations and the implementation timetable, please refer to the Council's official website.
