History

This body was established in 1925 as the Central Control Commission of the Communist Party of China, eventually changing its name to Central Commission for Discipline Inspection in 1949, after the establishment of the People's Republic of China. In 1955 the name was reversed to Central Control Commission, which operated under Vice Chairman of the People's Republic of China Dong Biwu until the Cultural Revolution, when its functions were mainly transferred to new "revolutionary organs". It was re-established in 1978 as the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection by the Third Plenary Session of the 11th CPC Central Committee.

According to the Constitution of the Communist Party of China, the Central Commission is directly under the CPC National Congress and on the same level with the CPC Central Committee. It is charged with rooting out corruption and malfeasance among party cadres. [1]

On January 4, 2006, the DICCPC set up a website for citizens to report on corruption by local officials, allowing whistle-blowers to avoid retribution.[2]
