The Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) passed the 9th Amendment to the Criminal Code in August 2015, and the new Anti-terrorism Law about four months later. Both have now come into effect, with provisions concerning cybersecurity.

A first observation is that both laws were passed within a relatively short period of time. In the case of the 9th Amendment of the Criminal Code, three readings and a public consultation process took place in less than 10 months. Similarly, the Anti-terrorism Law started its legislative journey in November 2014, when it received a first reading, and was completed by the end of December 2015. Considering that the Anti-terrorism Law is a new law and the first of its kind – and a new law generally takes two to three years to pass in China – this legislative pace is quite remarkable.
