The Ministry of Supervision (MOS) of the Government of the People's Republic of China is responsible for maintaining an efficient, disciplined, clean and honest government, and educate public servants about their duty and discipline. It is one of several ministries under the State Council of the People's Republic of China.


The Ministry of Supervision was established as the People's Supervisory Commission in October 1949 after the founding of the People's Republic of China. It took on the present name Ministry of Supervision in September 1954. The ministry was abolished in April 1959. The ministry was reestablished in July 1987 by the Sixth National People's Congress. This led to successive local supervisory authorities being created at the provincial and local levels. On May 9, 1997, the Ministry of Supervision was legislated to enforce the Law of the People's Republic of China on Administration Supervision of the government agencies.[1]

On 30 August 2007, Ma Wen was appointed Minister of Supervision.[2]
