The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) requires accredited TCM practitioners to prescribe and dispense complementary medicines in compliance with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). All complementary medicines must be listed on the TGA's Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). Here's a closer look at the manufacturing standards of complementary medicines.
Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)
All ARTG listed complementary medicines must be manufactured according to GMP principles, as required by the TGA. Listed medicines are assigned an AUST L number to be displayed on the medicine label.
Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation Scheme (PIC/S)
TGA also regulates the Australian guidelines for PIC/S certification in compliance with international standardisation of medicinal products.
Sun Ten is the only Chinese herbal extract manufacturer in Taiwan to continuously receive PIC/S GMP certification from Australian TGA since 2004 and is the only one manufacturer to receive the highest A1 level for consecutively 3 times (2013/2016/2019)
