China's Central Military Commission (CMC), one of the country's most powerful institutions, on Tuesday issued a set of documents that spells out how the military should strengthen self-inspections in order to fight corruption.

Approved by President Xi Jinping, who is also the commission's chairperson, the documents detail guidelines for the People's Liberation Army.

"The inspection work should discover, reflect and resolve problems, especially those that are most focused upon the leadership and the subject of most complaints by soldiers and officers, as well as those areas susceptible to corruption," according to one of the documents.

The military inspections are part of the leadership's anti-graft campaign which Xi himself had earlier described as the "shock and awe" treatment. Xi has vowed to take down both "tigers and flies," implying high-profile and lowly officials, in the crackdown on corruption. 

Over the past year, the CMC has issued several guidelines to reinforce discipline in the army, including an order that prohibits consumption of alcohol and extravagant meals.

The CMC has also stipulated that property ownership, the use of official cars and hiring of service personnel will be included in military audits.

Additionally, the CPC leadership on Tuesday approved a regulation to control waste and extravagance within the Party and the government and spoke of harsher punishments for offenders.

The Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee approved and agreed to publicize the "Regulation on Strictly Enforcing Thrift and Fighting Waste in Party and Government Departments."
