Posted on Updated on

XCZF No. (2013) 8

All provincial, autonomous region and municipal press and publications bureaus, the Xinjiang Production-Construction Corps Press and Publications Bureau, the Liberation Army General Political Department Propaganda Department Press and Publications Bureau, the Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing municipal comprehensive cultural market law enforcement teams:

In order to implement the spirit of the National Propaganda and Ideology Work Conference, to create a good atmosphere for the convention of the 3rd Plenum of the 18th Party Congress, and realistically strengthen management over printing, reproduction and distribution, hereby, the relevant requirements are notified as follows:

I, Unify thoughts, raise understanding

All localities must earnestly study the spirit of the National Propaganda and Ideology Work Conference, and deeply understand the implications of General Secretary XI Jinping’s speech on “ideological work relates to the future fate of the Party, relates to a long time of peace and order for the country, and relates to the cohesion and centripetal force of the nation.” Printing, reproduction and distribution are important segments for the consolidation and dissemination of ideological and cultural content, have clear ideological properties, are important battlefields for ideology management, and are important areas to safeguard cultural security. In the new era, administrative structural reforms to streamline government administration and decentralize power have deepened incessantly, printing, reproduction and distribution industries have developed rapidly, digital network technology is broadly applied, and even higher demands have been put on management work of the printing, reproduction and distribution sectors. All localities’ relevant management departments must soberly understand the important responsibility they bear and the complex situation they face, expand ways of thinking, and perform supervise work with a high sense of responsibility and a sense of mission.

II, Perfect mechanisms, stress innovation

Integrating daily patrols with unexpected inspections is an important measure in management systems to supervise that printing and reproduction enterprises carry out contracting letters, and in management systems to supervise that distribution work units perfect book purchasing and sales. All localities must summarize experiences, innovate incessantly and progressively perfect long-term management mechanisms. Prominence must be given to the following two points:

(1) Perfect online management sharing mechanisms, innovate management methods.

Shanghai, Jiangsu, Anhui, Guangdong, Shandong and other such places have taken the nationwide lead in establishing printing and reproduction management information systems, they realized online inspections of contracting letters within their regions, and have resolved relatively well problems that exist in the segments of contracting letter listings, filing, etc. All localities must learn from experience and accelerate the construction of management information platforms. Beijing and Hebei are two unique regions, in which the implementation of network printing management was especially pressing, it is necessary to strive to gain substantive progress in the first half of next year, and realize interaction between both as soon as possible. Other localities meeting conditions must also vigorously move networking trials forward. Furthermore, information and data sharing mechanisms must be set up between printing, reproduction and distribution management departments and comprehensive cultural market law enforcement teams, to ensure that enterprise information is shared, information about punishments is communicated, rewards and punishments are consistent, and supervision and management results are raised.

(2) Perfect team training and building mechanisms, innovate grass roots work.

The printing, reproduction and distribution sectors have many points, long chains and a vast coverage, the problems and tasks in supervision and management mainly lie at the grass roots. All localities must, in integration with launching the Party’s mass line education and practice movement, pay high attention to grasping the grass roots, do foundational work, and realistically strengthen ideological education and professional training for grass roots management personnel. The Administration will successively organize training for relevant personnel in provincial level management departments and in batches for district-level city management departments. All localities must formulate plan to successively organize rotational training at least once every two years for relevant management personnel at the district-level city or focus county level. At the same time, it is necessary to go out the door, go all the way down, vigorously resole difficulties and issues at the grass roots front, and incessantly strengthen the fighting strength and cohesion of grass roots teams.

III, Dare to manage strictly, be pragmatic and effective

Printing, reproduction and distribution are the principal forces of cultural industry development, all localities must overcome the one-sided thinking on “focusing on development, overlooking supervision and management”, persist in changing the flawed situation that supervision and management work “is soft in correcting [mistakes] and does not lead to penalties”, persist in grasping matters with both hands, both hands must be strong, dare to unsheathe the sword, dare to grasp and dare to manage. Strictly administer matters according to the law, persist in relying on laws where they exist, and implementing the law strictly.

(1) Strictly investigate focus regions, persist in dealing with acts violating regulations that happen often.

All localities must, on the basis of hierarchical and categorized management of printing, reproduction and distribution, and on the basis of the real situation, conduct focused inspections of localities where publications printing enterprises and read-only compact disc reproduction enterprises are concentrated, localities where foreign-related reproduction and printing enterprises are concentrated, localities where acts violating laws and regulations often occur, as well as publications wholesale markets, and off-line and online bookstores that are often pointed to in reported clues, and raise their intensity and strength. It is necessary to sustainably deal with acts violating regulations that happen often, such as printing publication without contracting letters for printing or reproduction, printing internal reference-type publications without printing permission certificates, accepting printing or reproduction contracts in violation of regulation, not having standardized publications purchasing channels, sale of illegal publications or pirated publications, etc. At the same time as conducting strict punishment of printing, reproduction or distribution enterprises that violate regulations, list them on a “blacklist” for focus supervision and management.

(2) Strictly implement rules, realistically strengthen supervision and management of online bookstores.

All localities must earnestly implement the management regulations concerning online bookstores in the “Publishing Management Regulations” and the “Publications Market Management Regulations”. According to the requirements of Article 36 of the “Publishing Management Regulations”, and Articles 17 and 27 of the “Publications Market Management Regulations”, strengthen management over publications business activities conducted through information networks, the provision of online publications trading platform services and other such business activities, strictly keep access gates, further implement network distribution work units’ real name registration and credential publication rules. Strengthen supervision and management over online bookstores during and after business, focus on expanding supervision and inspection strength over online publications trading platforms, unlicensed or incompletely licenced online bookstores must be cleaned up in a concentrated manner, or rectify within a limited time. Supervise online bookstores to establish and complete publications sales management systems, and standardise business activities. Expand case investigation and prosecution strength, where illegal publications, pirated publications as well as foreign illegal publications are sold through online bookstores, once this are discovered, this must be punished strictly and without mercy.

(3) Strictly implement responsibilities, implement law enforcement reporting and appraisal systems.

All localities must persist in localized management and the principle that who manages is responsible, implement responsibility systems and responsibility investigation systems, ensure hierarchical responsibilities and individual responsibility. It is necessary to persist in and perfect the “National Administrative Printing and Reproduction Law Enforcement Reporting Appraisal System”, implement target assessment, supervise grass roots management personnel in entering enterprises, patrol markets and handle cases, realistically change the present negative supervision situation that a number of management personnel “do not want to handle cases, do not dare to handle cases, or cannot handle cases”. We must grant awards to localities where supervision and management work is implemented relatively well and achievements have been obtained, places where management rule implementation is powerless, or false reports are made are to be criticized, and printing, reproduction and distribution supervision work systems are to be further improved and perfected.

All localities must make printing, reproduction and supervision management work into an important content of ideological management work and grasp it. They must vigorously strive for the support of local Party Committee and government leaders. They must actively coordinate relevant departments in strengthening case-handling and forming force pools. All localities must timely report problems encountered in printing, reproduction and distribution supervision and management work, as well as good methods and experiences, to the Administration.

关于加强印刷复制发行管理的通知

新出政发〔2013〕8号
各省、自治区、直辖市新闻出版局,新疆生产建设兵团新闻出版局,解放军总政治部宣传部新闻出版局,北京市、天津市、上海市、重庆市文化市场行政执法总队:
为贯彻落实全国宣传思想工作会议精神,为党的十八届三中全会召开营造良好氛围,切实加强印刷复制发行管理,现将有关要求通知如下:
一、统一思想,提高认识
各地要认真学习全国宣传思想工作会议精神,深刻理解习近平总书记“意识形态工作事关党的前途命运,事关国家长治久安,事关民族凝聚力和向心力”的讲话内涵。印刷复制发行是思想文化内容重要的固化和传播环节,具有鲜明的意识形态属性,是意识形态管理的重要阵地,是维护文化安全的重要领域。新时期里,政府简政放权的行政体制改革不断深化,印刷复制发行产业快速发展,数字网络技术广泛应用,对印刷复制发行行业的管理工作提出了更高要求。各地有关管理部门要清醒认识所肩负的重要职责和所面临的复杂形势,开拓思路,以高度的责任感和使命感做好监管工作。
二、完善机制,注重创新
日常巡查和突击检查相结合是督促印刷复制企业落实委托书等管理制度、督促发行单位完善出版物进销货管理制度的主要举措。各地要总结经验,不断创新,逐步完善长效管理机制。要突出以下两点:
(一)完善网络管理共享机制,创新管理手段。
上海、江苏、安徽、广东、山东、云南等地已经在全国率先建立了印刷复制管理网络信息系统,实现了本区域内委托书网上核查,较好地解决了委托书开具、备案等环节存在的问题。各地要借鉴经验,加快建设管理信息平台。北京、河北两地区位独特,实施印刷网络管理尤为迫切,要力争在明年上半年取得实质性进展,并尽早实现两地互通。其他有条件的地区,也要积极推进联网试点。另外,印刷复制发行管理部门和综合执法部门之间要建立信息数据共享机制,做到企业信息共享、处罚信息互通、奖惩口径一致,提高监管成效。
(二)完善队伍培训建设机制,创新基层工作。
印刷复制发行业点多、线长、面广,监管问题和任务主要在基层。各地要结合正在开展的党的群众路线教育实践活动,高度重视抓基层、打基础的工作,切实加强对基层管理人员的思想教育和业务培训。总局将分批组织省级管理部门和分片区组织地级市管理部门有关人员进行培训。各地要制订计划,分批组织辖区内地级市或重点县级市有关管理人员在两年内轮训一遍。同时,要走出门、沉下去,积极为基层一线解决困难和问题,不断增强基层队伍的战斗力和凝聚力。
三、敢于严管,务求实效
印刷复制发行是文化产业发展的主力军,各地要克服“重发展、轻监管”的片面思想,坚决改变监管工作“纠正软、不处罚”的缺位状态,坚持两手抓、两手硬,敢于亮剑,敢抓敢管。严格依法行政,坚持有法必依,执法必严。
(一)严查重点地区,持续整治高发违规行为。
各地要在印刷复制发行分级分类管理的基础上,根据实际情况,对出版物印刷企业和只读类光盘复制企业集中地区、涉外印刷复制企业集中地区和违法违规行为高发地区,以及出版物批发市场、举报线索指向较多的网下及网上书店进行重点检查,提高密度和力度。要对无印刷复制委托书印制出版物、无准印证印制内部资料性出版物、违规承接转委托印刷复制业务、出版物进货渠道不规范、销售非法出版物和盗版出版物等高发违规行为持续进行整治。在对违规印刷复制发行企业进行严肃处罚的同时,将其列入“黑名单”进行重点监管。
(二)严格落实制度,切实加强网上书店监管。
各地要认真落实《出版管理条例》、《出版物市场管理规定》中有关网上书店的管理规定。按照《出版管理条例》第三十六条、《出版物市场管理规定》第十七条和第二十七条的要求,加强对通过信息网络从事出版物经营活动和提供出版物网络交易平台服务等经营活动的管理,严把准入关,进一步落实网络发行单位实名注册和证照公示制度。加强网上书店的事中事后监管,重点加大出版物网络交易平台的监督检查力度,对无证无照、证照不全的网上书店要集中清理、限期整改。督促网上书店建立健全出版物进销货管理制度,规范经营活动。加大案件查处力度,对通过网上书店销售非法出版物、盗版出版物以及境外非法出版物的,发现一起,查处一起,严惩不贷。
(三)严格落实责任,改进执法报告评价制度。
各地要坚持属地管理和谁主管谁负责的原则,落实责任制和责任追究制,做到分级负责、责任到人。要坚持并完善“全国印刷复制行政执法报告评价制度”,实施目标考核,督促基层管理人员进企业、巡市场、办案件,切实改变目前部分管理人员“不想办案、不敢办案、不会办案”的消极监管局面。要对监管工作落实较好并取得成绩的地区予以表扬,对管理制度落实不力,虚报、瞒报的地区予以批评,进一步改进完善印刷复制发行监管工作体系。
各地要将印刷复制发行监管工作作为意识形态管理工作的重要内容来抓。要积极争取当地党委政府领导的支持。要主动协调有关部门加强协作,形成合力。各地要将印刷复制发行监管中遇到的问题和好的做法经验及时报送总局。
