What is the difference between cancelling a subject registration and cancelling a website registration?
Cancelling a subject registration deletes all the information for the ICP Filing number at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).
Cancelling a website registration deletes the ICP Filing information for a specific website. After cancellation, your ICP Filing subject still exists and the other websites that are not cancelled under the subject remain unaffected.
After the communications administration approves the cancellation, the website becomes inaccessible.
It usually takes 3 to 20 business days for the communications administration to review a cancellation application.
Canceling the registration of a website only deletes the ICP Filing information for the selected website. Other websites with ICP Filings under the same subject are not affected.
You cannot cancel an ICP Filing and reapply for a new ICP Filing at the same time. You must wait for the cancellation application to be approved by the communications administration. Then, go to the Public Query page of the MIIT ICP Filing management system (www.miitbeian.gov.cn) and check that no ICP Filing information is returned before submitting a new ICP Filing application.
