China Slashes 192 Prerequisite Service Items of Administrative Approval
The State Council has recently issued the decision to eliminate a second batch of 192 prerequisite service items of administrative examination and approval.
The items are mainly in three categories: The first category of 94 items is outright abolition. Applicants are no longer required to provide materials including relevant assessments, feasibility studies, authentication and proof. For the second category of 53 items, the examination and approval authorities will commission technical service in accordance with the need of examination and approval work. Previously, applicants engaged the services of intermediaries to provide relevant materials. For the third category of 45 items, applicants are allowed either to prepare relevant materials on their own or continue to entrust intermediaries for the preparation.
Currently, having eliminated 70% of the prerequisite service items of administrative examination and approval, the State Council has largely completed the clearing up work.
