Ayurvedic, Unani and Homoeopathic medicines are regulated in the country under the provisions of Drugs & Cosmetics Act, 1940 and the Rules thereunder. For this purpose, the Licensing Authorities are appointed by the State Government to grant license for manufacturing of Ayurveda, Unani and Homeopathic medicines and enforce the legal provisions for their sale or marketing and quality standards. In this regard, the Central Government is empowered to make or amend the law & rules. Besides, the Department of AYUSH in the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare has taken a number of regulatory measures for quality control of these medicines including enforcement of compliance to quality standards of drugs, compliance to Good Manufacturing Practices(GMP), notification of a schedule of poisonous substances, regulatory guidelines for licensing of Ayurvedic and Unani(A&U) medicines, use of excipients, preservatives etc., notifications regarding permissible limits of heavy metals, alfatoxins, pesticide residue and microbial load and shelf life of medicines.
