China’s top court issues rule on internet operators

Internet platforms should strictly review business licenses of food service providers to ensure they are registered by real-name system. Otherwise, the internet operators will also be held liable together with the food service provider when found harming consumers’ rights.

That rule has been written into a guideline on handling cases involving online consumption, which was issued by the Supreme People’s Court, China’s top court, on Wednesday.

If a food takeaway service provider is discovered harming food safety due to the review loopholes of the internet platform, both parties will face punishment, according to the 20-article guideline, which will take effect on March 15.
