What is the history of the European Herbal Practitioners Association (EHPA)’s involvement in herbal regulation in the UK and Europe?

In the early 1990’s, it became clear the European Union was going to have a major impact on herbal regulation in the UK and EU. In 1992, I came across a document published by the European Committee on Proprietary Medicinal Products (CPMP) listing some 30 herbal remedies which were described as having "serious risks without any accepted benefit”. To my astonishment, several herbs on the list were being used daily in herbal practice and, properly used, are in my opinion not at all unsafe.
