Trade Groups Request NDAA Blacklist Delay Citing Coronavirus

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Apr 06, 2020

Two trade groups representing government contractors have asked Congress to delay implementation of the NDAA's 'blacklist' clause from this August to "at least February 2021". UPDATE: SIA has joined the request.

While the trade groups say they support the blacklist, they say that coronavirus related disruptions make it impractical to start in just 4 months.

This clause has raised significant concern in video surveillance, as it would ban any firm that "uses" Hikvision/Dahua equipment from selling to the federal government. If granted, the delay would give substantially more time for users to adjust.

In this note, we examine this request, whether it will be granted, and its possible implications, including:

  • Blacklist Clause Background
  • Letter: Coronavirus Makes "Current Implementation Timeline Infeasible"
  • Blacklist Clause Current Status
  • Trade Groups Examined
  • SIA Did Not Request/Update: SIA Joins
  • No Government Reply Yet
  • Likelihood of Delay Being Granted
  • Impact of Delay
