Edited by Vagelis Papakonstantinou, Brussels Privacy Hub


China’s Cybersecurity Review Measures (“Review Measures”) were released on April 13, 2020 and will take effect on June 1, 2020. The Review Measures will replace the Network Product and Service Security Review Measures (Trial) that have been in effect since 2017. From the initial trial to the final version, the Review Measures have been gradually condensed and refined over a three-year period of practice and exploration. This document uses 5G security as an example to analyze the logic and key points of the Review Measures.

Keywords: China Cybersecurity Act, China Cybersecurity Review Measures, 5G security
