Tech Export Law - Affects Foreigners!

China has passed a new law restricting sensitive exports to protect national security.

The law, which Chinas top legislature passed on Saturday, comes into effect on December 1 and allows Beijing to take reciprocal measures against countries that abuse export controls and pose a threat to national security.

Technical data related to items covered will also be subject to export controls, according to the published text of the law.

The new law, formulated to safeguard national security and interests, adds to Chinas regulatory toolkit which also involves a restriction catalogue of tech exports and an unreliable entity list.

Where any country or region abuses export control measures to endanger the national security and interests of the Peoples Republic of China, (it) may take reciprocal measures, the law states.

It adds that Chinese authorities will formulate and adjust an export control list of items to be published in a timely manner.

Foreign individuals and groups can also be found liable for violating export control rules.

New Law Against Infectious Diseases!

Chinas top legislative body passed a new biosecurity law aimed at preventing and managing infectious diseases, the official Xinhua News Agency reported late Saturday.

The National Peoples Congress Standing Committee voted to adopt the law on Saturday, according to Xinhua, and it would come into effect on April 15, 2021.

The law would establish systems for biosecurity risk prevention and control, including risk monitoring and early warning, risk investigation and assessment, and information sharing.

It would also have provisions to prevent and respond to specific biosecurity risks, including major emerging infectious diseases, epidemic and sudden outbreaks, and biotechnology research, development and application, reported Xinhua.

China had announced in May that it aimed to fast-track the passing of the biosecurity law by year-end, following the global coronavirus outbreak.

New Law to Protect Minors Online!

China's top legislature on Saturday voted to adopt a revision to the Law on the Protection of Minors, strengthening protection of underage youths in cyberspace.

Internet product and service providers shall not offer minors with products and services that induce addiction, says the revision, which was approved at the closing meeting of a regular session of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.

Providers of online services, including game, livestream, audio and video, and social media, shall set up corresponding functions such as time limit and consumption limit for minors, according to the revision.

The minors under cyberbullying and their parents and guardians have the right to inform the Internet service providers to take measures such as deleting, blocking or disconnecting links.

Upon receiving the notice, the service provider shall take necessary measures to stop the bullying and prevent the spread of related information, says the revision.

The revised law will take effect on June 1, 2021.

The revision also makes provisions on sexual assault and harassment against minors, stipulating that schools and kindergartens shall not conceal such illegal and criminal acts, and shall promptly report to the public security and education authorities, and cooperate with relevant departments according to law.

When recruiting staff, organizations that are in close contact with minors shall inquire with the public security organs and the people's procuratorates whether the applicants have criminal records of sexual assault, abuse, trafficking and violence. Applicants found to have the aforesaid behavior record shall not be employed, says the revision.

In terms of preventing and stopping school bullying, the revision requires schools to establish a prevention and control system for bullying among students, and provide training for teachers, staff and students on such matter.

Schools shall immediately stop the bullying and inform the parents or guardians of all students involved, the revision provides.

The revision also pays attention to areas such as strengthening guardians' responsibilities of left-behind children and enhancing social protection of minors.
