There is a total of five guiding cases, covering issues relating to marine environment protection, preservation of natural relics and traditional villages, control of solid waste pollution, and prevention of high-speed rail safety hazards.

As one of the guiding cases, the administrative public interest litigation case concerning multi-region issues (Jian Li No.113, 检例第113号), presented how Zhengzhou Railway Transportation Branch of Henan People’s Procuratorate supervised the rectification of illegal building of small reservoirs that endangered the operation safety of high-speed railways.
