Public Consultations by the NPCSC

This page archives all public consultations conducted by the NPC Standing Committee since the start of the 13th NPC in March 2018, listed reverse-chronologically below. The newest version of a bill that is still pending is marked with an orange triangle (), and any prior version with a red triangle (). Bills without these markers have been passed. The symbol “Δ” means that a document includes a chart comparing the draft (typically an amendment or a revision) with the current law or a prior draft.
