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.

If the party concerned has sufficient evidence to prove that there is no mens rea, no administrative penalty shall be imposed. Where there are other provisions in laws and administrative regulations, such provisions shall prevail. This article is of great significance to the compliance management.  It can be said that the Administrative Punishment Law has brought brand new compliance credits to the great efforts for compliance management.

These people and their families have been banned from entering the mainland of China, Hong Kong and Macao. They and their affiliated enterprises and institutions have also been restricted from dealing with and doing business with China.  On January 9, China’s Ministry of Commerce issued Measures for Blocking Improper Extraterritorial Application of Foreign Laws and Measures.

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.
