MIIT Releases Real-Name Network Access Regulations

Sina Tech, 7/22/13

China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has released real-name registration regulations requiring that new fixed-line and mobile users (including internet data card users) provide real-name identification when signing up for such services, starting from September 1.

The new regulations also require that telecom operators conduct once yearly internal reviews of customer real-name registration data and customer personal information protection. If found not in compliance with real-name registration regulations, or uncooperative with inspections by telecom supervisory agencies, telecom operators face penalties ranging from RMB 10,000 to RMB 30,000 per offense.
