China’s Foreign NGO Law: Interpreting and Navigating the New Rules

China’s new Foreign NGO Law requires pre-approval and reporting of proposed NGO activities, and it requires the establishment of a formal NGO Representative Office when activities last longer than a year. Considering that an estimated 7,000 NGOs now operate in China without a formal structure or have incorporated as a commercial enterprise, properly understanding the new law and navigating its requirements is of critical importance to NGOs intending to continue to operate in China.

Chet Scheltema, Regional Director of Dezan Shira & Associates, will introduce the new Foreign NGO Law and its requirements, it’s background and intent, and attempts to create a general framework for understanding how it will be implemented:

  • Foreign NGO Law and Charity Law;
  • Permitted and Prohibited Activities;
  • The Political and Legislative Context behind the New Law;
  • Application Procedures;
  • Dual Supervision: PSB and PSU;
  • Reporting, Fundraising and Taxation;
  • Enforcement and Sanctions.

A brief Q&A will follow the presentation.

This event is free of charge. To RSVP, please visit the official registration page.
