Final Rule Does Not Expand Hikvision Dahua Blacklist

By Charles Rollet, Published Aug 14, 2020, 07:01am EDT (Info+)

The final White House rule (200.216) has been added and contrary to the original OMB publication and original White House Proposal, the blacklist is not being expanded.

In the original 8/13 guidance, the White House included language expanding the blacklist clause, banning federal funds from being spent on any Hikvision/Dahua/Huawei HiSilicon user. This would have meant, for example, that Hikvision users could not participate in any federally-funded contracts, even a FEMA grant for a local church to buy shovels.

Well I’m guessing the Hik/Dahua lobbyists earned their paychecks today.

Again you are all falling for the political theater that's going on between Trump and China. Two things are going to happen in the near future: either Trump gets his new China-US trade deal done, which would lift this "ban" and everything goes back to normal, or Biden wins and he would just get rid of the ban altogether. Either way, in our company we will continue to sell whatever our customers wants us to provide them with, they pay our bills, not the government.

Hermin....you are such a rebel. I am going to forward all my hikua bids to you. Then if you happen to have a sales rep named LOU, you can have Lou file them in his file cabinet labeled...Lou's Bids!

How much of that 5.8 is what the customer wanted? Keep your bills paid Colonel Bagley!

Ah, but you forget that the investigations into these companies started long before Trump became president. This didn't all happen overnight. The bill was originally introduced by a whole different group of people and had Sen John McCain's name attached to it. I think you may be falling for the theater being presented by the opposing side to confuse people. I don't see the ban being lifted until these two companies get put out of business for the way they treat their slaves, I mean employees. The networking issues are just the flies on the outside of the pile that brought attention to them.

How does the NDAA affect products from these companies that are not video related such as the below?

My understanding is anything that is capable of networking (IP) is banned, and as this turnstile's first bullet point starts with "TCP/IP..." then it is a no-go either. Analog devices as well as accessories and mounting hardware, etc. should be fine.

This is debatable. Our company has taken the position that we are not going to sell any products by these companies, nor products that contain them. It is not worth the risk.

We have customers who are completely banning all products by the included companies (Hik/Dahua/Huawei). Doesn't matter what the products are or how they are being used.

Also, our analog cameras connect to TruHikUwa encoders so could have been affected.
