China Updates- Counter-Terrorism Law

In December 2015, China introduced a new Counter-Terrorism Law, effective from 1st January 2016. Two requirements in the draft have been dropped, namely that ISPs should relocate their related servers and domestic user data to China and allow the Chinese government a backdoor into those servers and hence the data contained therein.

Retained provisions, however, include the requirement that encryption keys be made available to the Chinese government and assistance should be provided by the ISPs to monitor content.

Whether the dropped provisions are a real concession given the ambit of those retained is a matter of debate.
