The most debated provision of the NDAA ban of Dahua, Hikvision, Huawei, et al. is the so-called 'blacklist' provision which would ban any company selling Dahua or Hikvision to, say, a pizzeria from selling at all to the US government or US government-funded projects.

- FAR Background
- Examination of Proposed FAR Rules
