Who we are

At the end of 2009, the Chinese Medicine Industry Council of Australia (CMIC) was established as an initiative of seven Australian major Chinese herbal medicine suppliers with the aim to ensure an effective and sustainable supply of quality products and tools to Chinese medicine practitioners to meet their clinical needs. The five principles of “Quality, Safety, Efficacy, Availability and Affordability” are our core values.

Chinese medicine is part of complementary medicine in Australia, and Chinese medicine practitioners including Chinese herbal medicine practitioner, Chinese herbal dispenser and acupuncturist are part of Australian Healthcare workforce accredited and registered under NRAS 2010.

The CMIC is a platform for suppliers, dispensers, educators, researchers, manufacturers and practitioners who also have an interest in herbal medicine to work together for the ultimate interest of public health, through which professional counselling will be provided to enforce the self-discipline and development of the profession while providing consultations to governments for a proper management for the industry.
