Police certificate from China

Hi! We just received our NOA2, and now I'm trying to get ready for the next step in the process. My fiancé (French) studied for about 10 1/2 months in China in 2012. Everything I've read on the websites of the US gov and US embassy in Paris indicates that he shouldn't need to worry about providing a police certificate for China as he spent less than a year there and had no contact with the police. However, I've seen some posts here indicating that it may be required to have a police certificate for any country you've lived in for more than 6 months depending on the embassy you're dealing with. As I said, the only information I've found on the Parisian embassy's website simply repeats:
"You must provide a police record for France and each country where you have resided for one year and more since age 16 (with the exception of the United States). Information on how to obtain your French police record (casier judiciaire) is available online at: https://www.cjn.justice.gouv.fr/cjn/b3/eje20. Information on other police records is available at this site http://travel.state.gov/visa/fees/fees_3272.html. Police records cannot be older than one year on your interview date."

It would be very difficult and stressful for us to attempt to obtain a police certificate from China, and my fiancé is adamant that since all the information we've seen agrees that he shouldn't need one, he doesn't want us wear ourselves out trying to hunt one down just to be on the safe side. It's still worrying me, though, as I think it would take a long time to obtain, and I would hate to find out at the last minute that it was required after all.

Has anyone gone through the French embassy and had a similar issue? Do you know if they drew the line at 'one year or more' as they claim, or whether six months was actually the cutoff?

I had to get one from China. I'm in Canada. I would e-mail the embassy where you will have your interview to be on the safe side. Then if they say not to worry about it, bring that e-mail to the interview with you.
