US Commerce Department Considers Sanctions Over Companies Profiting From Xinjiang

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Oct 04, 2018

The US Commerce Department is considering its own sanctions for businesses alleged to be enabling repression in the Chinese region of Xinjiang such as Hikvision and Dahua, potentially making it near-impossible for American companies to export key components to them.

This is new and in addition to the Treasury and State departments considering their own separate set of “Global Magnitsky” sanctions for Hikvision and Dahua over the firms’ Xinjiang involvement. (Trump Administration Considers Sanctions Against Dahua and Hikvision).

In this note, we examine the multiple efforts and how this would impact Dahua and Hikvision.
