Regulation of Chinese medicines traders

The licensed Chinese medicines traders should comply with the Chinese Medicine Ordinance and its subsidiary legislation, the practising guidelines and other laws, when carrying on their business. Otherwise, the Medicines Board may consider taking disciplinary action against them. If the Medicines Board considers it necessary in the public interest, or is satisfied that a licensed trader has (i) failed to comply with the licensing conditions or restrictions; (ii) failed to comply with any prescribed conditions, or duty, in respect of the practice of his/her trade; or (iii) has been convicted of an offence of the Chinese Medicine Ordinance, the Medicines Board may temporarily suspend or revoke his/her licence; vary the licensing conditions or restrictions; or issue a warning to him/her.
