These rules establish requirements to proper practice of cultivation, collection (procurement), processing and storage of initial raw materials of the plant origin intended for medical application and system of quality assurance of this practice. Production and processing of medicinal vegetable raw materials directly influences quality of active pharmaceutical substance.

2. Ensuring the reproduced quality of initial materials of plant origin in connection with complexity of component composition of the wild-growing and cultivated medicinal raw materials and limited opportunities of analytical techniques for establishment of characteristics of their components in case of cultivation, collection (procurement), processing and storage of herbs requires proper system of quality assurance.

3. Main objective of these rules is creation of the corresponding system of quality assurance of medicinal vegetable raw materials for safety of consumers of medicinal vegetable raw materials, and also in order to avoid possible pereputyvaniye of similar plants and harming the environment because of low qualification of personnel and lack of control by establishment of the corresponding quality standards of medicinal vegetable raw materials. At stages of cultivation, collection (procurement), processing and storage of medicinal vegetable raw materials in order to avoid decline in quality and for minimizing of microbiological loading it is necessary to provide compliance with law of state members of the Eurasian Economic Union (further respectively - state members, the Union) in the field of use of hygienic requirements and sanitary standards, and also careful processing of medicinal vegetable raw materials.

Some exudates (for example, arabic gum, gum) which were not exposed to special processing are also considered as medicinal vegetable raw materials.

Producers and distributors of medicinal vegetable raw materials shall observe requirements of these rules, document all operations performed by them in documents (file) on series and demand observance of these rules from all participants of production process of medicinal vegetable raw materials (if other is not proved).

8. Cultivation, collection, processing and storage of medicinal vegetable raw materials shall be performed with observance of provisions of the Convention on international trade in the types of wild fauna and flora which are under the threat of destruction (SITES) and without drawing environmental damage.
