The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) formally announced it will no longer authorize electronic equipment from Huawei, ZTE, Hytera, Hikvision, and Dahua, deeming them an “unacceptable” national security threat.
All these Chinese telecom and video surveillance companies were previously included in the Covered List as of March 12, 2021.
“The FCC is committed to protecting our national security by ensuring that untrustworthy communications equipment is not authorized for use within our borders, and we are continuing that work here,” FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a Friday order.
“These new rules are an important part of our ongoing actions to protect the American people from national security threats involving telecommunications.”
