Since 2003 Homeopathy treatment has been regulated by the Portuguese Law No 45/2003 of 22 August 2003 on the provision of non-conventional therapies (231).
It is legal to practise homeopathy in Portugal both for health professionals and for non-medical professionals according to the legislation passed in 2003 (50).
Homeopathy is registered as no. 2230.2 in the Portuguese Classification of Occupations 2010 (http://aphomeopatia.weebly.com).
The Portuguese Medical Association does not recognise homeopathy. However doctors are allowed to prescribe as they deem right for their patients (Freedom of Therapy) (60).
