Any public facing website hosted in China should either have an ICP (Internet Content Provider) license or an ICP filing.
It includes two types: 1) ICP Filling (or ICP recordal or ICP Bei’An) - If you provide content that can be accessed through public internet, can be a website, mobile APP, or Web API for non-commercial purposes, you may simply just need to go through the ICP filing process. 2) ICP License - If you are providing specific services over internet through website, mobile APP, Web API, or the content and service with commercial transactions or related to governed market segments like education, healthcare, media, financial service, you may need to obtain certain ICP license accordingly.
We created this guide to help international customers to decide which ICP they should apply and understand the process to obtain the license.
