State Publishing Bureau

After the Central Propaganda Bureau published the “Notice concerning Temporary Non-Examination and Approval of Newly Established Newspapers, Periodicals and Publishing Houses” on 9 August 1985, one year has passed, and our Bureau has basically ceased the examination and approval of newly established publishing houses. But following the further development of the science, technology and culture undertakings, there still are many requests to establish publishing houses. In order to implement the spirit of the Centre’s instructions concerning strictly controlling newly established publishing houses, our Bureau has drafted conditions and rules for the examination and approval of newly established publishing houses, and reported them to the Central Propaganda Department for approval. The following is hereby notified:

国家出版局关于审批新建出版社的条件的通知
1985年8月9日中宣部下达《关于暂不审批新办报刊和出版社的通知》后,一年来,我局已基本停止审批新建出版社。但随着科学技术、文化事业的进一步发展,要求建立出版社的仍然很多。为贯彻执行中央关于从严控制新建出版社的指示精神,我局拟定了审批新建出版社的条件和办法,并报经中宣部批准。现通知如下:

一、主办出版社的单位必须是党政机关和全民所有制的企事业单位。建立中央一级出版社应由部委或相当于部委一级的单位申请,所办的出版社须有主管部委的负责人直接领导。建立地方出版社,应报经省、自治区、直辖市党委宣传部和省、自治区、直辖市人民政府同意,由省一级出版行政管理部门向我局申请。所办的地方出版社须有省、自治区、直辖市主管厅、局的负责人直接领导。

二、有明确的办社宗旨、出书方针、专业分工和出书范围。

三、有相当的专职编审、副编审、编辑和健全的编辑机构,以及必要的出版业务人员,申请办社时要报编辑人员的名单,并附学历、简历。

四、有办社所需的国拨专项资金。如因出书范围限制造成非经营性亏损,应明确由主管部门负责补贴。
