US Drafting Separate Rule for NDAA Dahua/Hikvision 'Blacklist'

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Mar 14, 2019

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.

Now, IPVM has verified that the US government is drafting 2 FARs (Federal Acquisition Regulations) implementing the NDAA ban which specifically addresses the law's effective blacklisting.

In this post, we examine the news, explain what FAR rules are now being drafted, and look into potential impact, including:

  • FAR Background
  • Examination of Proposed FAR Rules
  • Prior Lobbying Against Blacklist Clause
  • Conclusion
