The German market is open to the traditional Chinese medicine, but the barriers remain high, the German provisions must be monitoring the quality of medicines and to apply for a certificate, to ensure that Chinese herbal pesticide and metal components. Consumer advocates have been made in China, herbs are very prejudice, they warned that Chinese herbal medicine and is not in accordance with the provisions of the formal examination.

China is not "herbal power"
As the world's herbal treasure "of China's existing Chinese herbal medicine is almost 1.3 million, only 320 kinds of commonly used herbal medicine, the total reserves of 8.5 million tons.
It is regrettable that although China is the world recognized herbal, but because of the external bias and the Chinese side for some reason, China is not yet the herbal power, the share of international market share is less than 10%.
Dr. Paul Sylvester, Chinese herbal medicine to be exported, the West, must have a few conditions. The development of Chinese herbal medicine to keep up with modern technology, many Chinese herbal medicine companies on the international pharmaceutical market and the national drug regulatory poorly understood, difficult to get the "access card" of the importing country.

In addition, herbal quality is the key. Paul Sylvester Japanese herbal medicines sold in Germany thanks to its high quality. Japanese law is very strict drug inspection requirements, each ingredient must undergo a rigorous inspection, and inspection reports will be officially announced.
