BEIJING, Dec. 26 (Xinhua) -- A total of 1,485 administrative regulations, local regulations and judicial interpretations were filed with China's top legislature for recording and review in the past year.

The figure was made public during an ongoing bimonthly session of the National People's Congress (NPC) Standing Committee. The Legislative Affairs Commission of the NPC Standing Committee Wednesday submitted a report on its recording and review work in 2019 to the session for deliberation.

The Legislative Affairs Commission can conduct its recording and review work through three mechanisms to make sure legislation is in line with the Constitution and national laws.

It can conduct the work on its own initiative based on chartered duties, conduct the work in response to applications submitted by state organs, citizens or organizations, or launch a special aggregate review of normative documents in a specific area.

The commission conducted research on 138 applications for review submitted by citizens and organizations, giving feedback to the applicants, said Shen Chunyao, director of the Legislative Affairs Commission, when briefing lawmakers on the report.

The commission urged local legislatures to modify 300 local regulations and abolish 44 in the past year.

The commission is also wrapping up a special aggregate review of normative documents on ecological and environmental protection to improve regulations in the area, said Shen.

Lawmakers deliberated the report in panel discussions Thursday. The legislative session will run until Saturday.
