China proposes online advertising oversight

China to crack down on livestreamers for tax evasion

China’s market regulator proposed new rules on Friday that would increase online advertising oversight, including stipulating that adverts should not affect normal internet use or mislead users.

Authorities in China have tightened regulation across a range of industries this year, with an emphasis on technology, Reuters reported from Shanghai.

Search giant Baidu Inc. and game publisher Tencent Holdings warned during recent quarterly results that the short-term outlook for advertising sales looked weak, impacted by the pandemic and China’s regulatory crackdown.

Internet advertising must “meet the requirements for the establishment of socialist spiritual civilization and the promotion of excellent traditional culture of the Chinese nation”, the State Administration for Market Regulation said.

The proposed rules call on platform operators to establish a system for registering and reviewing advertisers and adverts, and “monitor and inspect the content of advertisements displayed and published by using its information services”.

The proposed rules also call for bans on advertisements aimed at minors promoting medical treatments, cosmetics and online games “that are not conducive to the physical and mental health of minors”.

The proposed new rules are open for public comment until December 25, the regulator said on its website.

In September, China’s cyberspace regulator published draft rules dictating how companies can use algorithmic recommendations, after earlier rules pertaining to the use of data and unfair competition.
