On June 10, 2017, the Cyberspace Administration of China (the “CAC”) released the Draft Regulations on the Security Protection of Critical Information Infrastructure (the “Draft Regulations” 《关键信息基础设施安全保护条例(征求意见稿)》). The CAC is seeking public comments with a deadline of August 10, 2017. The final version will likely be announced soon after that date.
