Giving doctors kickbacks in the form of speaker fees is literally an everyday practice of pharmaceutical and medical devices companies.  For the giving of the speakers’ fees, many well-known pharmaceutical companies have been implicated for paying bribes.  Although many implicated entities were heavily fined – some were even criminally prosecuted – the “high returns” generated via speaker fees still lure pharmaceutical or medical device companies into continuing giving kickbacks through “speaker fees”.

The draft law provides for the obligation to the operators of key information infrastructures to locally store the personal information that is collected and generated within China, which is also the obligation for a processor whose quantity of processed personal information meets certain threshold as will be separately prescribed by the State Network and Information Department.  Where it is necessary to transfer personal information overseas, a security evaluation must be carried out by the State Network and Information Department. Security evaluations can be omitted if laws, regulations and State Network and Information Department allows the omission.

“Long-arm jurisdiction” in the US law enforcement becomes notorious in China.  It seems that everyone in China knows that the US government takes “shameless” liberty in imposing huge fines on Chinese companies and putting Chinese people into prison.  As such, Uncle Sam is viewed as Policeman on Pacific Ocean where no policeman is needed.  In relation to the “long-arm jurisdiction”, the new law provides for extraterritorial jurisdiction over any possible violations outside China.

You may think it as retaliating or a reciprocal measure; China issued its Export Control Law to take effect from December 1, 2020.  The exporters or even their agents with the exports endangering China’s security or sovereignty will face administrative or criminal liabilities. As such, MNCs (and their agents) whose exported items could end up in military or “hostile” use should be mindful of this new law, which is seemingly the focus.  This new law is in the right tendency of granting meaningful credits for the efforts in compliance.  Those which have established a robust compliance management system shall have much convenience in exporting.

On September 19th, 2020, China’s Ministry of Commerce issued the Regulation on the List of Unreliable Entities. This regulation seems to be a response by China to the recent Wechat and Tiktok ban. This regulation shows that the Chinese government, like the US government, is going to increase enforcement in export control and trade sanction areas. American businesses with significant exposure to the Chinese market should update their compliance system and take this new regulation into account. Because this piece of regulation has just come into effect, so far, there have been no entities added to the sanction list.

The Corporate Social Credit System is still under construction and needs to be adjusted, expanded and improved continuously. Therefore, the corporate should pay continuous attention to and accurately grasp the future development of the social credit system, closely observe the changes of the administrative department’s credit rating system and rating requirements, and carry out internal monitoring on the daily operation of the corporate to ensure that the corporate's behavior meets the credit rating requirements.
