Earlier this month, the Executive Yuan (EY) issued a directive to extend the Notice & Comment period for all draft regulations from 14 days to 60 days. Further, effective 10/1/2016, the new 60-day rule will also apply to EY drafts of proposed legislation applicable to trade, investment or IPR matters. Below, please find the original document in Mandarin Chinese and an unofficial English translation for your reference:
For the business community, this promising regulatory improvement has been the change that AmCham Taipei actively pursued as one of our top priorities for the past two years. We see this reform as a sign of the current Administration’s willingness to proactively engage the public and industry stakeholders to improve the regulatory transparency.
AmCham Taipei strongly encourages you and your business partners in Taiwan to take advantage of this great opportunity and whenever possible, make frequent and meaningful comment submission on new and/or existing draft regulations and/or laws.
We are very excited about this new change. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Government Affairs department using the contact form on this website or by phone. Contact info available here.
Thank you very much for your support.
