With the issue of "Beijing Volunteering Administration (Trial)." people who engage in volunteer activities in Beijing are required to make a formal registration for identification. Yesterday, an official at the Beijing Social Work Committee said so far there have been more than 1 million volunteers registered in Beijing, among which 49,800 people have unique volunteer ID numbers conferred by the Public Security Department.

Most current volunteers will pass through certification

This year, most of the rest of the volunteers will pass through the certification and obtain Beijing Volunteer Cards, which is linked to their personal ID numbers.

This identification would bring a variety of advantages to volunteers, such as keeping count of volunteering time and standing as a proof of community service.

Beijing volunteers likely to get offered insurance

"Beijing Volunteering Administration (Trial)" also provides that voluntary organizations or units that receive volunteer service offer personal accident insurance. In addition, it is planned by Beijing Social Work Committee to release information on volunteer activities on the website of "Beijing Volunteers' Forum" (http://www.bv2008.cn).
