The quantity of venues that have been realistically banned and have passed through re-examination and verification work refers to the proportion of the reduction of the total quantity of business venues that originally had complete licences, business venues that originally should have been banned for being unlicensed or incompletely licenced, cannot be calculated into the proportion of real reduction.

(3) The persons participating in the forum should be well versed in special campaign work, and be teachers, household heads, students, journalists, Communist Youth League representatives, neighbourhood committee representative, village committee representatives, etc., who are concerned about the upbringing of minors. All localities should also invite local People’s Congress representative and Consultative Committee members to be present at the forum for guidance.

(4) Where, among the general comprehensive assessment, a single assessment dues not meet qualifications, the general assessment also does not meet qualifications. If two single assessments meet basic qualifications, the general assessment can also only be meeting basic qualifications.

At present, the special campaign work to bring electronic gaming business venues under control has entered a crucial phase. All localities and all relevant departments must, with a high sense of political responsibility and a sense of the urgency of the times, and in line with the principles of responsibility for the people and responsibility for the next generation, firmly implement the work deployment of the Centre and the State Council, strictly enforce the law, seek real results, deeply push this special campaign work forward, truly understand the prominent questions that the popular masses are broadly concerned about, realize a basic improvement in the electronic gaming business venue situation, and make the necessary contributions to the construction of a Socialist spiritual society.

文化部、国家经贸委、公安部、信息产业部、外经贸部、海关总署、国家工商行政管理局关于深入开展电子游戏专项治理工作有关问题的通知
文化部 国家经贸委 公安部 信息产业部 外经贸部 海关总署 国家工商行政管理局
文市发(2000)42号

全国加强娱乐服务场所管理暨电子游戏经营场所专项治理电视电话会议以来,各省、自治区、直辖市党委和政府从讲政治的高度迅速召开会议,认真传达电视电治会议精神,成立专项治理工作协调领导小组;各地文化、经贸、公安、外经贸、信息产业、海关、工商行政管理等职能部门各司其职,积极制定专项治理工作方案和重新审核标准,组织大规模的宣传舆论、调查摸底和集中执法工作,一批违法违规经营场所依法受到严惩;新闻舆论机构浩大的宣传声势和广大人民群众的积极支持,使电子游戏专项治理工作取得了阶段性成果,全社会监督和抵制违法电子游戏的良好氛围正在形成。
但是,专项治理工作中也暴露出一些问题:无证照或者证照不全的经营现象仍然比较普遍,除国家法定节假日以外,电子游戏经营场所接纳未成年人问题仍然比较严重,打着“电脑培训”、“网吧”等名义非法从事电脑游戏经营活动的状况尚未得到根本治理。在加大对城市非法电子游戏经营场所治理力度的同时,也出现了经营者将违法违规机具向地下转移、向郊区转移、向农村转移的不良势头,非法电子游戏经营活动更加隐蔽和分散。一些地方对于非法电子游戏的危害性依然认识不足,部门之间配合不够默契,影响了专项治理工作的效果。
为了进一步推动全国电子游戏经营场所专项治理工作的深入开展,切实解决目前存在的突出问题,扎扎实实地做好下一阶段的工作,现将有关问题通知如下:
一、统一思想,狠抓落实,从严执法,务求实效
各地各有关部门要进一步学习领会国办发〔2000〕44号文件和6月30日电视电话会议精神,充分认识非法电子游戏经营活动的危害,在思想上、行动上与党中央保持高度一致,加快工作进程,加大执法力度,保障电子游戏经营场所专项治理工作取得预期效果。
(一)严格按照国办发〔2000〕44号文件规定,狠抓贯彻落实。今后一律停止审批新的电子游戏经营场所,一律取缔无证照或者证照不全的电子游戏经营场所;依法严惩违法违规经营行为,对违反国办发〔2000〕44号文件第三条规定的要坚决关停,决不能出现以罚代关代停的现象;从严制定重新审核标准并切实实施,不得在现有的电子游戏经营场所中审批增添或变更新的任何类型的电子游戏设备,也不能搞以提高规模或档次等各种名义的集中归市经营;坚决停止面向国内的电子游戏设备及其零、附件的生产和销售活动;最大限度地压减电子游戏经营场所总量,直至彻底解决电子游戏的危害问题。
(二)以保护青少年健康成长为主题,继续加强舆论监督和宣传动员工作,进一步表明政府部门坚决治理非法电子游戏经营活动的信心和决心。大张旗鼓地宣传非法电子游戏的危害,赢得广大人民群众的信任和支持,引导中小学生自觉远离电子游戏经营场所,抵制非法电子游戏经营活动。通过组织公开销毁赌博机具、宣传治理成果和典型案例等形式震慑违法经营者,从而形成强大的宣传舆论攻势。
(三)针对专项治理工作中暴露出来的突出问题,各有关职能部门既要明确各自职责,实行管理部门责任追究制度,又要通力合作,共同做好专项治理工作。文化部门是这次专项治理工作的第一责任部门,要积极主动地发挥电子游戏经营场所主管部门的作用,会同有关职能部门协调、组织联合执法行动;公安部门要加强对电子游戏经营场所的治安管理和消防检查,依法严惩赌博、制贩传播淫秽物品等违法犯罪活动;信息产业部门要坚决查处和取缔计算机信息网络经营场所(包括“电脑屋”、“网吧”、“网络咖啡屋”等)中的电脑游戏活动;工商行政管理部门要会同文化、公安部门做好重新审核登记工作,坚决取缔无证照或者证照不全的电子游戏经营场所;其他有关职能部门也要依照各自的职责把专项治理工作认真落到实处。
(四)专项治理工作要结合实际情况抓住关键,抓住重点,对于重点地区、重点问题,要重点对待、重点治理,抓严抓实、抓出成效。要在继续加大城市电子游戏经营场所专项治理力度的同时,一级抓一级,层层抓落实。要深入基层,经常巡查,强化对社区、厂矿以及郊区、农村的检查治理;层层公布举报电话,做到有举报有回复;发动街道、居委会和乡镇、村委会等基层单位参与专项治理工作,协助有关部门把电子游戏经营场所专项治理工作落到基层,落到实处,使违法违规的电子游戏经营活动无处藏身。
(五)堵疏并重,整建结合,积极研究、论证、引导已被关停经营场所改变经营项目,积极倡导适合广大群众消费水平的健康有益的文化娱乐活动,为社会各界尤其是老年人和青少年提供丰富多采的文化娱乐项目,创造良好的社会文化环境。

(2)明查暗访的场所数量应为压缩后总体数量的2-5%。所列8项违法违规现象,发现一款要扣除一款的分数。
(3)参加座谈会人员应是熟悉专项治理工作,并关心青少年成长的教师、家长、学生、记者、共青团代表、居委会代表、村委会代表等。各地还应邀请当地人大代表、政协委员莅临座谈会指导。
