The Chinese government has developed a new rating system to achieve a self-regulated marketplace. The system is being tested this autumn, with launch expected by the end of 2020. It is the Chinese government’s vision to use advanced technologies (big data and artificial intelligence) to monitor and steer both government authorities and private companies. The corporate SCS assesses the behaviour of companies (including their supply chains) based on 30 regulatory rating criteria, representing around 300 rating requirements that cover all aspects of Swiss companies’ businesses in China. Ratings can be positive, but regulations cover predominantly the consequences of a bad score. As reported by the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, every negative rating (bad score) corresponds to a set of measures that potentially result in being blacklisted, and ultimately may result in joint sanctions on a blacklisted entity. Thus, the corporate SCS will be the most comprehensive system created by a government to achieve a self-regulated marketplace, and it will fundamentally change how business is done in China in future.
