The Regulation on Security and Protection of Critical Information Infrastructure was promulgated on April 27 and is to enter into force as of September 1, 2021.  As usual, we may get panic once again.  However, before getting panic, we should get to know if the Regulation would be applicable to us.  From the name of the Regulation, we should check if our company could fall within the category of critical information infrastructure.

The Chinese government has shown great willingness in recent years to regulate China's technology sector.  Issues ranging from data security to privacy to antitrust have been put on center stage.  To be compliant in such a setting requires a great deal of foresight.  Companies who have business operations in China should keep up to date with the current regulatory development.  Risks can be managed only when one is not complacent.

In 2020, China’s Supreme People’s Prosecuting Institute (SPPI) launched their “non-prosecution for compliance” program to protect enterprises’ interests, rights, and to facilitate operations in accordance with the law. Under this program , private businesses can be exempt from criminal liabilities for a number of minor crimes, as long as the business takes certain remedial measures and establish a compliance management system.

The law does not provide “don’ts” or prohibitive compliance obligations (like GDPR or the Law on the Protection of Personal Information does): you must not obtain personal information without the consent of the data owners or some prohibitive provisions.  The major difference between “don’ts” and “dos” is that “don’ts” provide bottom lines, violation of which is then punishable, but “dos” provide some things nice to have or to prevent bottom lines from being broken.  Short of “don’ts”, the law is not like a teeth-biting law – it is like policy-law.

Since 2015, Alibaba has abused its dominant market position by imposing a compulsory condition "either Alibaba or no service" requirement on merchants on its platforms. With the help of its market strength, platform rules, data, algorithms and other technical means, Alibaba Group utilized a variety of reward and punishment measures to guarantee the implementation of the requirement, maintain and enhance its own market power, and gain unfair competitive advantages.

Drawing inspiration from European Union’s legal practice, China has created a similar legal regime for counteracting the impact of foreign sanctions on Chinese persons. Only Chinese persons or entities could be subject to the injunction and prohibited from complying with foreign regulations identified by the “working mechanism.” The Chinese rule creates a private right of action for Chinese persons or entities to seek civil remedies in Chinese courts from anyone who complies with prohibited extraterritorial measures, unless the State Council has granted an exemption to the prohibition order.

To write the book Bribery Risk Management in China, we did a survey about how bribery risk is managed in China from March 22 to September 19, 2020.  There were 400 participants taking part in the survey.  Some survey result is surprisingly interesting.  Regarding "how many times has your company experienced the risk of making bribes”, 39% selected 10 times or more; 32% selected once.  It is quite surprising that about 40% selected 10 times and the selection of another 1/3 is as low as once.
