Tiandy's Iran Business, Sells to Revolutionary Guard And Military

By Charles Rollet, Published Dec 06, 2021, 07:48am EST

PRC manufacturer Tiandy is supplying Iran's Revolutionary Guard, police, and military while touting itself as an Iran-friendly alternative to other PRC manufacturers who do not have direct operations in Iran.

Tiandy's substantial direct activities in Iran could risk violating US sanctions. IPVM previewed our findings to Tiandy, but Tiandy did not respond.

Tiandy also sold Intel-powered NVRs to the Iranian military, per a source with direct knowledge. Intel told IPVM that it had "no knowledge of the allegations raised" in this report and that "responsibility to comply with U.S. export regulations is with the third party".

Background: IPVM report on Tiandy PRC China Surveillance Giant.
