Anti-bribery legislation is always a big concern for Chinese market players. On 4 November, 2017, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) adopted the amended and restated Anti-unfair Competition Law (new AUCL), which will come into force as of 1 January 2018. This is the first revision to the existing AUCL since its implementation in 1993. Under the new AUCL, legal provisions on commercial bribery have been significantly revised.
