How to Publish Public Notices in Newspapers in China?
You can publish a notice in a provincial or national newspaper in China, or in the People’s Court Daily(人民法院报) of the Supreme People’s Court of China.
In China, notices usually appear in the following scenarios.
I. Notices of company liquidation
If the company is to conduct the liquidation on its own initiative, the liquidation committee should publish a notice to notify creditors to declare their rights in personam, in a national newspaper, or a provincial newspaper that has a certain influence in the place where the company is registered, depending on the company business scale and territory.
II. Notices of company bankruptcy
If a company is liquidated due to bankruptcy, the court shall publish a notice to notify creditors to declare their rights in personam when it accepts bankruptcy application, bankruptcy reorganization, and termination of bankruptcy proceedings.
Since bankruptcy is accepted by the court, such public notices are usually published in the People’s Court Daily.
III. Service of notices in litigation
In civil litigation, if the person to be served cannot be located or cannot be served by any other means such as mail, the court may serve legal documents by publishing a notice in a newspaper.
Such public notice is normally made in the service of notice of hearing and judgment, and published in the People’s Court Daily.
Generally, most Chinese newspapers only publish notices in Chinese while a small number of newspapers publish notices in both Chinese and English, or English only.
