Founded in 1921, the Communist Party of China (CPC) is now 91 years old. By the end of 2011, it had 82.602 million members. Generally speaking, the CPC's organizations are at the central, local and grassroots levels.

The Party's central organizations include its National Congress, Central Committee, Political Bureau of the Central Committee, and Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee; as well as each organization's administrative bodies and functional institutions.

The Party's local organizations, according to administration, are at three levels: province, city and county. Until now, province-level Party committees have been established in 31 provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities), city-level committees in 333 province-administrated cities (prefectures), and county-level committees in 2,859 counties (cities, districts).

The Party's grassroots organizations refer to those established within enterprises, rural areas, government offices, schools, scientific research institutions, residential communities, social groups, social intermediary agencies, PLA units and other lower-level establishments. The Party Constitution mandates the establishment of a Party committee in any organization that has more than three full members of the Party. By now 3.6 million grassroots Party organizations have been established nationwide.

In order to enhance Party building, the CPC has also set up discipline inspection institutions, which consist of discipline committees at various levels and their agencies. The mission of these discipline committees is to defend the Party Constitution and other internal regulations; ensure the implementation of Party lines, policies and decisions; and help Party committees in Party-building and anti-corruption efforts.
