China's cyberspace authority on Monday issued two regulations to strengthen the management of online news services.
One of the regulations requires online news providers to provide more training and supervision of their staff.
The training on Marxist news theory should be strengthened, according to the document released by the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).
Cyberspace authorities will set up a management system for online news editors, which will include a blacklist.
The other document deals with a security evaluation mechanism on the use of new technology in online new services.
It requires service providers to conduct such evaluations before the introduction of new technology or applications in their platforms.
The CAC regulation also demands safeguard measures for information security.
Both documents will go into effect on Dec. 1.
