    Certain animals bred under controlled conditions could be removed from the special state protection list of China's wildlife protection law.

    The first draft of the revised law received its first reading last December, and a second reading on Monday.

    The latest draft takes into account suggestions presented to a committee of China's National People's Congress.

    The draft says carrying out captive breeding programs for species removed from the state protection list would require obtaining permits from the authorities, and that the sale and use of such animals would require special tags issued by the authorities to ensure traceability.

    The NPC Law Committee has noted that regulating captive-bred animals differently from wild ones is consistent with internationally accepted practice.

    The newest version also specifies that the central government retains the power to approve hunting of wild animals under first-class state protection, for the purpose of scientific research, population regulation and the monitoring of disease.
