BEIJING, June 11 (Xinhua) -- The Supreme People's Court (SPC) of China on Tuesday released an outline on deepening reform and improving the long-term mechanism on tackling difficulties in enforcing court orders.

The outline lays out 53 major tasks in 10 areas to improve Chinese courts' work on judgment enforcing from 2019 to 2023.

The purpose of the outline is to consolidate the accomplishments made in the country's efforts to tackle difficulties in enforcing court orders, said Meng Xiang, chief of the SPC enforcement bureau.

The consolidation will be done mainly via methods such as normalizing the virtuous circle of the work, normalizing the enforcement mode based on modern information technology and normalizing the strong action against nonstandard enforcement.

"Solving the difficulties basically is only the goal of a phase, after which the work will not be loosened, and the quality standard will not be lowered," said Zhao Jinshan, deputy chief of the bureau.

A highlight of the tasks listed in the outline is improving the general structure of the work on tackling difficulties in enforcing judgments, as the outline calls for the release of more local laws, regulations and documents to institutionalize the structure and to make it long-standing and sustainable.

The research and drafting of the law of civil compulsory enforcement will be completed by people's courts by the end of the year, according to the outline.

As for the application of modern technology, the information of those subject to punishment for losing credit should be further shared via the "Internet Plus" monitoring system and the national sharing platform for credit information with departments and organizations, the outline says.

It also stresses "zero tolerance" toward nonstandard enforcement, asking for measures including inviting professionals in fields such as arbitration, notarization and accountancy to help with enforcement and getting more judicial police to take part in enforcement while giving full play to their edges in efficiency and deterrence.
