National Supervisory Commission

The National Supervisory Commission (NSC) works closely alongside the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection (CCDI) and acts as the state's highest anti-corruption agency in the People’s Republic of China (PRC). Although technically overseen by a state employee, the real power of the agency lies in the hands of Zhao Leji, the head of the CCDI.

  • Secretary of CCDI: Zhao Leji

  • Chief Officer: Yang Xiaodu

  • Number of Employees: Unknown

  • Annual Budget (Public): Unknown

  • Formed: 2018


As previously mentioned, members of the NSC works closely alongside its CCDI partners. Founded in 2018 to give a legal basis to cases built by CCDI agents, the NSC has become one of Beijing's main anti-graft agencies.

The NSC was hailed by the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC) as a step forward in the fight against misconduct, as the body has jurisdiction over all Chinese citizens, including members of the CPC. However, The Intelligence Ledger has repeatedly noted that the NSC does not have authority to investigate personnel from the People’s Liberation Army and People’s Armed Police, two organizations that have been overwhelmed by rampant corruption, and refrains from investigating high-ranking members of the Communist Party.
