On 24 Feb. 2021, the National Database of Laws and Regulations (国家法律法规数据库, the Database) was launched online, providing free legal search and inquiry service to the public.

The Database is established and run by the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s legislature.

The Database provides electronic texts of the Constitution (including its amendments), laws, administrative regulations, local regulations, and judicial interpretations of the People's Republic of China currently in effect.

You may access and use the database with automated language translation tools like Google Translate.
