When will the specific government departments that handle such information release applications begin their formal operation?

Starting from May 1, 2004, specific government departments that handle information release applications will formally provide their services. They are responsible for releasing the information of their department and to receive and handle the applications of information releases. The name, address, working hours, telephone, fax and email address will be provided to the public so that citizens, legal persons and other organizations can conveniently apply for government information.

Before November 1, specific departments should also compile release guides and information release catalogues about the information to be released.
