The legislative body approved the regulation that proposes restaurants, canteens or cafeterias to charge a fee to customers who leave excessive amounts of food. However, they must clearly publish the amount.

The regulation responds to concerns about the annual waste of nearly 18 billion kilograms of groceries in China’s urban dining industry.

This is in addition to the loss of more than 35 billion kilograms of grains in the stages prior to consumption, including storage, transportation and processing, according to a report submitted to Congress.

On the other hand, the legislators endorsed an amendment to the Education Act, to identity theft in enrollment punish more rigorously.

Impostor students will have their qualifications for admission revoked and will be banned from taking school entrance exams for a period of two to five years.

The text, which will come into force on Friday, also stipulates sanctions for teachers involved in such acts.

Another amended legislation was the Maritime Traffic Safety Act, aimed at controlling the emergence and spread of contagious diseases among ship crews.
