China’s Drug Evaluation Centre Adds 30 New Drugs to Priority Review List, Offering Faster Time to Market

In recent years, China has strived to become a more attractive market for the pharmaceutical industry. Perceived as a market where drugs took longer to get approved and updates to the National Reimbursement Drug List (NRDL) failed to meet industry needs, China is seeking to reinvent itself through streamlined changes to both regulatory and reimbursement processes. One such change is a priority drug review list in which China aims to sharply reduce the time needed for a drug to obtain market authorization in the country.
