This is because herbal extracts purchased from PPC may NOT need to be tested further for identification purposes, microbiology (as required), heavy metals (tested on a rotational basis by PPC), pesticides, residual solvents etc etc as long as the following criteria are met: verification of supply chain is obtained and packaging integrity is maintained (see https://www.tga.gov.au/technical-guidance-interpretation-manufacturing-standards-sampling-and-testing-complementary-medicines).
