Practise of homeopathy is restricted to medical doctors and veterinarians (60).

The Supreme Court of Justice (Suprema Corte di Cassazione( 1982, 1999, 2003, 2005, 2007) has ruled that homeopathic products must be prescribed only by medical doctors and that it is an infringement of medical powers for anyone without a degree in medicine to practise Traditional and Non-Conventional Medicines (168, 170172).

Both The Italian “National Federation of the Orders of Doctors and Dentists” (FNOMCeO) and different court rulings have acknowledged homeopathic treatment as an additional medical qualification and a responsibility of a medical doctor or dentist (106, 168). FNOMCeO has called on the government to provide necessary legislation (106).

Public registers for homeopaths is not yet in force. Italian medical practitioners of homeopathy have completed post-graduate training in homeopathy, anthroposophic medicine or homotoxicology (60).
