|State Administration for Market Regulation|
The State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) is the People's Republic of China's governmental authority for regulating areas such as market competition, monopolies, intellectual property, and drug safety. The Administration was created in the 2018 Chinese overhaul of government administration, and merged or abolished a number of previous agencies, such as the State Intellectual Property Office.
The Administration consolidates in one ministry the market regulation functions previously shared by three separate ministries, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA), and the State Administration of Industry and Commerce (SAIC).
