Draft Amendments to China’s Administrative Litigation Law – Slowly Moving Towards Greater Rights for Market Participants?

16 September 2014

The People's Republic of China Administrative Litigation Law was enacted in 1990. Back then, it was seen as a ground-breaking development, as the law authorizes entities and individuals to bring lawsuits against administrative authorities and their personnel.



In 2013, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress – China's legislative branch – decided to amend the Administrative Litigation Law. The main aim of the revision seems to be to remove what is perceived to be a range of procedural obstacles that plaintiffs face when bringing administrative lawsuits. On 31 August 2014, the Standing Committee published its latest draft amendments to the law and issued a call for comments from all interested parties.
