The Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine (RCHM) is a UK professional body which represents over 400 fully qualified practitioners of chinese herbal medicine. All members of the RCHM have either graduated in the UK from a college affiliated to the RCHM, or, if they have graduated overseas they will have passed a stringent application and interview procedure. All members have to abide by a code of ethics and dispensary practice, and they are encouraged to use suppliers who have undergone a full quality control audit which allows the supplier to be placed on an approved suppliers list. All RCHM members also take part in continuing professional development activities to keep their knowledge up to date. In addition they have to hold full professional insurance and in the unlikely event of a problem occurring the RCHM has a formal complaints procedure.

Members of RCHM do not use any form of endangered animal or plant species in treatments. To ensure treatment by an appropriately trained and bona-fide herbalist, prospective patients are advised to use the RCHM's most up to date list of practitioner members.
