February 2, 2010

The agency will only consider appeals on the grounds that it acted unfairly in accordance with its published procedures, that it formulated guidance that
cannot be reasonably justified in light of submitted evidence or that it exceeded its powers as a public body, NICE says in the draft. International Pharmaceutical Regulatory Monitor
