GAPP: All Publishers Must Submit Samples within 30 Days

To step up the regulation on the submission of publication samples, China’s publishing regulator, the General Administration of Press and Publications (GAPP), recently issued a Notice about Further Strengthening the Submission of Publication Samples. It requires that all publishers submit a sample of every new publication to a specific address in a timely manner.

The types of publications falling into the regulation include first editions of books, reprinted books, audio-visual products, and electronic publications. All must be submitted within 30 days of publication. All submissions must be complete, without any missing components.
