CAC has asked for public advice since September 2016 and the final version entered the one-month public notification period on Jan 6. As such, these regulations, after the public notification period, are waiting for approval from The National People’s Congress of China and will be implemented soon.Among the upcoming regulations, two items are related to online games. One is that the Youth Protection Software needs to be installed in PC, mobile devices and game consoles to avoid Internet addiction. Another one is to block access to online games from 12am to 8am for anyone aged 18 or under as well as to limit Youth’s daily gameplay time.
