Dear zizou,

what a laborious task! :clap:

One minor comment to your code:
The number of sims you used (1e4 as far as I could see) is a little bit low. Especially if you come into regions with power <=0.05.

Another comment to the Danish requirement:
Already in the early days of the evolution of (bio)equivalence tests it was dicovered that another construction of the CI may be used, namely

CI+ = (low, 1)    if high is < 1
CI+ = (1, high)   if low is >1
CI+ = (low, high) if low is <=1 and high is >=1

where low and high are the conventional confidence interval limits.
This construction of the CI always contains GMR=1 and corresponds - like the conventional CI - to a size alpha TOST.
This observation makes the Danish requirement statistical nonsense.
Unfortunately this alternative CI hasn't got further support in the history.

All we know about the world teaches us that the effects of A and B
are always different—in some decimal place—for any A and B.
Thus asking “are the effects different?” is foolish.    John W. Tukey
