Will the inclusion of a monograph for an herbal article in the Herbal Medicines Compendium imply that article is suitable for medicinal use?

Inclusion of a monograph for a particular herbal article in HMC should not be interpreted as an endorsement by USP of its status as a traditional medicine. An article may be approved under different designations in different countries. USP neither supports nor opposes country-specific regulations on how an herbal article is to be regulated or used.
