BEIJING — The Supreme People’s Court released a revised regulation on digital trial recording to improve transparency in court proceedings on Feb 22.

The whole process of all trials should be recorded via both audio and video, and voice recognition used in court text records, the document said, adding that unauthorized recording by individuals is illegal.

According to the document, courts nationwide should upload in-court audio and video recordings on online platforms devoted to judicial information disclosure for involved parties and lawyers to consult.

The regulation will take effect on March 1.
