Due to the fact that it is not a member of the UN, Taiwan can’t ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and its additional protocols. In November 2014, the CRC was officially implemented in Taiwan through a domestic act that follows the provisions of the Convention.

Taiwan has specific legislation to prevent sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism, the Child and Youth Sexual Transaction Act.
