Translated by Whitmore Gray and
Henry Ruiheng Zheng(Discussed and adopted by the Judicial Committee of the Supreme People's Court on 26 January 1988.)The General Principles of Civil Law of the People's Republic of China ("General Principles") came into force on January 1, 1987. We now issue the following Opinion concerning issues encountered when implementing the General Principles.
I. Citizens

A. Questions Concerning Capacity to Have Civil Rights and Competence to Perform Civil Acts
1. . The capacity of a citizen to have civil rights begins at the time of birth. The time of birth is that indicated in [the citizen's] 1 household registration certificate; where no household registration certificate exists, the time of birth is that indicated in the hospital birth certificate. Where there is no hospital certificate, [the time is determined] by reference to other relevant evidence.
2. . A citizen who has completed his sixteenth year but not his eighteenth year who receives income from his own labor and maintains a living standard comparable to that generally enjoyed by local residents may be determined to be a person with full competence to perform civil acts "whose principal source of support is income from his own labor." 2
