Implementing Regulations for the Supervision Law

Implementing Regulations for the Supervision Law was promulgated on 20 Sept. 2021, and entered into force on the same date.

The Regulations consists of 287 articles, aiming to regulate supervisory activities and promote the law-based exercise of supervisory duties.

The key points are as follows.

1. Will all property of the person being investigated be confiscated?

It depends.

First, the supervisory authority will only freeze the property involved in the case. (Art.111)

Second, the supervisory authority will retain the necessary living expenses of the person being investigated and his/her dependent relatives. (Art. 105)

Property hidden outside the country will also be traced and investigated by the supervisory authority. (Art. 237)

2. Can the public report crimes?


People can report violations or criminal offences in office to the petition department. (Art. 172) The reporter shall use his or her real name or the name of his or her department. (Art. 175)

The supervisory authority will protect the reporter’s personal information as well as the content of the report, and thus there’s no need to fear reprisal. (Art. 267)
