On Oct 29, a set of documents was jointly released by China’s central bank and State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) for a nationwide Certification of Fintech Products system (CFP). It includes the definitions of fintech products that require certifications as well as rules for its proceedings.

The listed products include:

  • em­bed­ded ap­pli­ca­tion soft­ware
  • cloud computing platforms
  • user front-end software
  • security carriers and chips
  • point of sale terminals and ATMs.

In the document titled “Fintech Product Certification Rules,” the PBoC and SAMR stated that, in order to obtain a CFP certificate from the central bank, applicants will have to pass a prototype examination as well as on-site inspections.

The validity of the certificate is for 3 years and it will require renewal after the expiration date. The document also mentions that during the validity period the CFP bearers have to pass random inspections at any stage of the production process.
