The State Council issued a circular on Oct 15, approving temporary adjustments to four administrative rules in East China’s Zhejiang province, in a move to deepen the reform of streamlining administration and improving government services and create a better business environment.
The regulations pertain to marriage registration, management of quality, survey and design in construction projects, and drug administration.
Mainland couples will be allowed to choose a marriage registration authority across Zhejiang, not just the one that holds their household registration, to handle marriage and divorce procedures, if either party is a registered permanent resident in the province, the circular said.
For construction projects, the adjusted rules permit the province to carry out classified management of construction drawing design documents, exempting those in low-risk projects from review, according to the circular.
To set up businesses engaged in drug wholesale and retailing in the province, applicants will no longer need regulatory approval for start-up preparations, the circular said.
The adjustments will be effective till Dec 31, 2023.
The circular urged related State Council departments and Zhejiang’s provincial government to align their own regulations and normative documents with the latest changes, and build supervision and management systems matching the reform.
