On May 3, 2012, the Supreme People's Court of China finalized and issued the Regulations on Several Issues Concerning Application of Law in the Trial of Civil Cases Arising from Monopolistic Conducts (the "New Regulations").These Regulations are China's first judicial interpretation of anti-monopoly related law suits after the promulgation of the Anti-Monopoly Law of the People's Republic of China ("AML") on August 30, 2007, which came into effect on August 1, 2008. The New Regulations, which took effect on June 1, 2012, set out for the first time the general guidelines for PRC courts in handling civil anti-monopoly lawsuits in China.
