The PTPMA recognizes the difficulties imposed on members by the lack of legislation for the herbal health care products manufacturers. The Association is therefore actively involved in liaison with the Ministry and Department of Health for an earliest favorable legislation to be formulated and deployed within the best interest of the Tibbi Pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. In the meantime both the Association and its members are committed to improve as far as possible within the existing statutory framework.
Where direct conflicts arise between the legitimate aspirations of members and inappropriate restrictions imposed by existing regulations, members are required to identify the problem to the Association and the Association will then formally raise the matter with the relevant regulatory authority with a view to agreeing a way forward that is acceptable to all parties.
The above considerations aside, members who conduct their business in breach of statutory regulation are also in breach of the requirements of membership of the PTPMA.
