The Chinese Ministry of Public Security (MPS) has recently released the final version of the ‘Guidelines on Organisational Registration and Temporary Activities Reporting’ under the Overseas NGO Law. 

In addition to the official text in Chinese (see above link), the Ministry of Public Security has also released an official English text of the Overseas NGO Law, named, ‘The Law of the People’s Republic of China on Administration of Activities of Overseas Nongovernmental Organisations in the Mainland of China’

Both documents were issued by the MPS at the conclusion of a meeting with foreign consulates and NGOs held in Shanghai on the 8 November, 2016.
