NPC establishes National Supervision Commission and enacts Supervision Law

GC Agenda China

April 2018

In the April edition of GC Agenda China, Morrison & Foerster partner Timothy W. Blakely explained what the new chapter to China’s constitution establishing the National Supervision Commission will mean for Chinese businesses moving forward.

According to Mr. Blakely: “In the NSC, China has created a powerful new agency that will wield broad supervisory powers and coercive investigative tools in furtherance of China’s ongoing graft campaign. While the targets of the NSC’s investigations will be government officials and others with roles at state-owned enterprises or other public institutions, private companies and individuals are not fully insulated from this development: the NSC is empowered to seek information and evidence from private parties, which must be mindful of and prepare for the potential need to respond to NSC requests for assistance in future investigations.”
