The administrative commercial departments at or above the district/county level shall file a written report after examination to the administrative commercial departments at the provincial level, and the format shall be designed by the latter.
2.
The format of the letter of examination report by the administrative commercial departments at the provincial level

The letter of examination report given by the administrative commercial departments at or above the district/county level shall be kept for record by the administrative commercial departments at the provincial level and need not be submitted to the Ministry of Commerce.
The letter of examination report may only bear the official seal of the foreign investment division or the domestic trade division under the administrative commercial departments at the provincial level, but shall bear such a statement as "This letter of examination report has been examined by officials in charge of commerce of all provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the Central Government)".
3.
