Peking University issued a “Notice on Regulating the Declaration and Approval of Participation in Online International Conferences Organized by Foreign Parties” on August 20, 2020. The Notice requires all teachers and students planning to participate in online conferences (webinars) to declare their participation and seek approval by providing documentation and specifics at least 15 days prior to an event. The Notice states that participation in online conferences organized by “foreign parties” (外方) shall be treated the same as a temporary visit abroad regulated by an earlier set of rules, “Peking University’s Provisions on Approval and Management of Going Abroad on Business” issued in 2012 which set out the application and post-visit reporting requirements as well as a three-tiered oversight structure. Similar notices were issued by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Foreign Affairs but they have not been made available to the public.
