Rumor: China to Impose Real Name Registration for E-Commerce, 1/22/10

According to an informed source, China's State Administration for Industry and Commerce (SAIC) is preparing to issue e-commerce regulations on March 15. According SAIC's notice seeking public comment on the proposed regulations, SAIC will require individual e-commerce vendors to register their online shop under their real name, and qualified vendors must register the business with SAIC. For vendors that are not currently qualified to receive an SAIC business license, the vendor's identity will be verified and a file will be established to be updated at regular intervals in the future. Vendors will also be required to display a seal indicating that their identity has been verified on their online store.
