The “AIC blacklist” is part of an enterprise “credibility supervision information system” shared between AIC bureaus, but not made available to the public. Specifically, the list categorizes enterprises into four categories (A, B, C, D) based on their creditability. If your name is listed in a key position of a company in categories B to D of this list, this may inhibit or prevent you from participating in a key position in new FIEs in the future.
The new issue of China Briefing Magazine, titled “The China Manager’s Handbook,” is out now and immediately available as a complimentary PDF download on the Asia Briefing Bookstore. Stories of expats having their name added to the Administration of Industry and Commerce “blacklist,” or being “trapped in China” for company legal proceedings, encourage a careful consideration of key positions in an FIE. This issue of China Briefing Magazine aims to shed a little light on this topic.
