The new directive will not allow registering of the new drugs without approval about the usage, quality and safety of the herbal drug is tested and validated by an independent agency. The government adds that before the directive was introduced, reputable companies following high standards were left at a commercial disadvantage while consumers were potentially at risk from unsafe products.
