Regulatory status of homeopathy in Spain

Homeopathic practice

On 29 September 2009 the Committee on Health and Consumer Affairs of the Spanish Parliament unanimously adopted a bill that recognises homeopathy as a medical act. It urges the government to “take the measures necessary for the exercise of homeopathy exclusively by graduates in medicine and surgery.”

On 17 December 2009 the Consejo General de Colegios Oficiales de Médicos (Spanish Medical Council) adopted a resolution that recognised the practice of homeopathy as a medical act.
