The following translation is based on DigiChina's translation of an earlier draft of these provisions by Helen Toner, Rogier Creemers, and Graham Webster. It has been revised and updated to reflect the final version, taking effect March 1, 2022, by Rogier Creemers. The following summary of changes is by Graham Webster.

Changes between the two versions include:

  1. More bureaucracies at the table. The authorities set to administer the provisions have expanded from the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) to include the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, referred to as "telecommunications" authorities, the Ministry of Public Security, and the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), though the CAC retains an "overall coordination" role. See Article 3. The four offices jointly issued this final version.
  2. No algorithmic fake news. The new Article 13 specifies a licensing requirement for algorithmic recommendation service providers operating in online news and prohibits algorithmic generation of fake news. This parallels Article 11 of the 2019 Provisions on the Management of Online Audiovisual Information Services. (Thanks Jeremy Daum of China Law Translate for the reference.)
  3. Removing explicit discrimination protection. Article 10 removes language barring the use of "discriminatory or biased user tags" in algorithmic recommendation systems.
  4. Specific protections for the elderly. Article 19 requires service providers take special care to address the needs of older users, including in preventing fraud.
  5. No algorithmic monopoly behavior. A new Article 15 bars the covered providers from using algorithms to "unreasonabl[y]" restrict other providers or engage in monopolistic acts or improper competition, likely reflecting part of SAMR's role.
