Regulation of herbal medicine practitioners in the UK is currently voluntary. Most herbalists are registered in one or more of a number of professional associations on a voluntary basis (302).

However in February 2011, the UK Government announced that it intends to
statutorily regulate practitioners supplying unlicensed herbal medicines on a one-to-one
basis (after an individual consultation) under the aegis of the Health Professions Council
(313).
