The Chinese herbal extracts will no longer be managed according to the approval number, except for the active ingredients and effective parts of the Chinese medicines approved by the new drugs. Chinese patent medicine production enterprises fail to produce, purchase and use traditional Chinese medicine extracts instead of traditional Chinese medicine decoction pieces according to the drug standards.
2. The formulation and implementation of the Chinese medicine standard system needs to be adapted to local conditions
In recent years, Chinese medicine has frequently fallen into the quality door. In response to this phenomenon, the relevant state departments have adopted a series of programs to deal with it, but the fundamental problem is the industry standard. In the process of quality supervision of traditional Chinese medicine, the implementation standards cannot be across the board. It should be determined according to the actual situation. The government should also consider the balance in the process of implementing standards. On the one hand, it regulates corporate behavior and industry rules, on the other hand, it guides enterprise development and industry. progress.

From the overall situation, the safety, effectiveness and quality control level of the 2015 edition of the Pharmacopoeia have been improved, and the total number of “chemical drugs, biological drugs meet or close to international standards, and Chinese medicines lead international standards” has been basically realized. aims.

But when it came out, there is currently no exact timetable for the official.
5. The impact of the central bank's interest rate cut on the Chinese herbal medicine market
The People's Bank of China decided to reduce the benchmark interest rates for loans and deposits of financial institutions (6.2426, -0.0004, -0.01%) from November 22, 2014. The one-year lending benchmark interest rate of financial institutions was lowered by 0.4 percentage points to 5.6%; the one-year deposit benchmark interest rate was lowered by 0.25 percentage points to 2.75%, and combined with the promotion of interest rate marketization reform, the upper limit of the floating range of deposit interest rates of financial institutions was determined by the deposit benchmark.

At the same time, medical institutions will join as price negotiators.
7. Chinese herbal medicines are ups and downs, and there is a call for a reserve system in agriculture.
In the face of the trend of moody Chinese herbal medicines, some Chinese patented companies have chosen to develop their own planting bases in order to prevent risks. This can alleviate the cost pressure when the price of Chinese herbal medicines soars, but once the price of Chinese herbal medicines plummets, the planting base becomes a burden for pharmaceutical companies. A number of executives of listed Chinese patented companies have called for the government to take the lead in establishing a national and local Chinese herbal medicines reserve system to store and store large quantities of Chinese herbal medicines in order to control the surge in prices of Chinese herbal medicines and stabilize the supply of medicines.
