This was the info in 2005:
In January 2005, a regulation was issued stating that all websites hosted inside China (not including those hosted outside China) must be registered or approved.
- All commercial websites must be approved
- All non-commercial websites must be registered
You can submit your website information to the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry here:
They say that you can obtain your registration or approval number within 20 days or so.
However, my commercial site hosted in China was recently informed that it had to register for the ICP. We received all the paperwork within the last few weeks. It appears that they are getting more strict about this.
