Ensuring compliance with China’s complex laws and regulations is extremely important for foreign companies in order to reduce the risk of investigations by governmental authorities and thus possibly being subject to penalties, fines and, in some cases, criminal charges. It is rare, however, to find a company in China that is fully compliant with the law because not only are there so many areas to pay attention to, but also because China’s laws and regulations change rapidly and sometimes unpredictably.
