China is expanding a pilot practice nationwide that requires administrative law enforcement officers, such as police and urban patrol officers, to record and archive their enforcement activities to be more transparent.

Audio and video recordings should be used in all enforcement actions involving personal freedom, life, health and major property rights, including property confiscation or demolition, according to a guideline made public on Thursday by the State Council, China's Cabinet.

For actions that are prone to controversy, such as on-site investigations and evidence collection, audio and video recording should be used, and all records should be archived and documented, the guideline said.
