Legal status and regulation of CAM in Europe

Deliverable 9 - WP 2 - Legal status and regulation of CAM in Europe

Juridisk status og regulering av KAM i Europa

I EU-prosjektet CAMbrella har NAFKAM levert en rapport som beskriver den juridiske situasjonen på feltet komplementær og alternativ medisin i Europa. 

(FP7-HEALTH-2009, GA No. 241951)

This deliverable is developed by WP2 in the CAMbrella consortium* in the period January 1, 2010 to April 30, 2012, and has been updated in the period from May to October 2012. The aim of this work package was to review and describe in all 27 EU member states as well as 10 associated states (later expanded with two additional countries):

  • The legal status of CAM
  • The regulatory status of CAM practices
  • The governmental supervision of CAM practices
  • The reimbursement status of CAM practices and medicinal products
  • The regulation of CAM medicinal products

An additional aim was to review at the EU level:

  • The status of EU-wide regulation of CAM practices and medicinal products
  • The potential obstacles for EU-wide regulation of CAM practices and medicinal products

The country-specific status has been described on the basis of publicly available legal and regulatory documents supplemented by personal visits to a purposive sample of countries. The status with regard to regulation of CAM medicinal products and the EU-wide regulation of CAM has been described on the basis of publicly available legal and regulatory documents only.

The deliverable consists of three separate reports - download them here:
