Meanwhile, Sandoz’ landmark approval under China’s Quality Consistency Evaluation (QCE) system  (Also see "Sandoz’ Unique Chinese Approval Paves The Way For Tender Access" - Generics Bulletin, 10 May, 2019.) gave it the edge in a competitive category this year, making the firm the worthy winner of our award for Regulatory Achievement of the Year, sponsored by Piramal.
