In accordance of Quansi 1999 Document No. 50 (权司［1999］第50号) issued by the Copyright Management Department of former National Copyright Administration in 1999, mandatory standards are technical standards with legal natures, so the copyright protection is inapplicable pursuant to Article 5 of the Copyright Law of the People's Republic of China.
However, according to the 2nd paragraph of Article 2 of the Standardization Law of the People's Republic of China, "National standards are divided into mandatory standards and recommended standards, and industry standards and local standards are recommended standards". Therefore, even there are de facto mandatory industrial standards and local standards, these industry standards and local standards are still protected by copyright and are not in the public domain.
