Regulation stipulating all proceedings in courts to be recorded implemented

Updated 2017-03-01 15:55:19 Global Times

Several regulations, including one on court recordings and the true-identity ticketing system, took effect on Wednesday, the China News Service reported.

Released by the Supreme People's Court on February 22, a revised regulation requires audio-visual recordings in court proceedings. At the same time, it bans unauthorized recordings made by individuals.

The document states that courts should upload audio-visual recordings on online platforms devoted to judicial information disclosures for people involved and their lawyers to access.

The regulation was among laws and regulations implemented on the same day.

The true-identity ticketing system on long distance public transportation also took effect, read another regulation, adding that a valid identity certificate should be presented when the passenger goes to the station and claims tickets purchased online, and those who purchase tickets for other passengers should be asked to present his and the passengers' valid identity certificates when claiming the tickets.

The names of public figures in the fields of politics, economics, culture, religion and ethnic affairs should not be used on trademarks, read another enforced regulation on Wednesday.

China's first film industry law, which states that actors, directors and other staff should be "excellent in both moral integrity and film art," maintain self-discipline and build a positive public image, also came into force on Wednesday.

The law also imposes stiff penalties on firms that fabricate box office earnings, data or information.
