BEIJING, Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- The State Council, China's cabinet, asked central and local government departments to introduce efficient and effective inspections on enterprises in a directive published Thursday.

All enterprises subject to regular administrative inspections should be randomly selected with the results published afterward, according to the directive.

Enterprises in industries closely related to public safety and health will be a priority of administrative inspections, the document said, adding that those that fail an inspection will be blacklisted.

However, the directive recommended inclusiveness and caution in dealing with emerging businesses.

The directive told the government to adopt well defined and feasible standard practices for enterprises to follow, encourage trade associations to discipline their members and push enterprises to tighten up internal governance.

The government will remove unnecessary administrative inspections, make sure that fines are irrelevant to the revenue of regulators, and improve transparency of law enforcement, the directive said.

As part of the administrative reform, the Chinese government has been working to streamline supervision on enterprises, changing the priority from oversight through administrative approvals before the operation of an enterprise to effective inspection on their operations.
