What is the NDAA?
The NDAA—National Defense Authorization Act—is one of a series of United States federal laws that specify and regulate the budget of the United States Department of Defense.
Section 889 of the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2019, signed into law in August 2018, prohibits “certain telecommunications and video surveillance services or equipment”. This prohibition limits the US federal government, government contractors and grant and loan recipients from purchasing or using “covered telecommunication equipment or services” from Huawei, ZTE, Hytera, Hikvision, and Dahua and their subsidiaries as a “substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.”
The 2019 NDAA has two phases:
- 1. Beginning August 13, 2019: the US federal government may not “procure or obtain or extend or renew a contract to procure or obtain any equipment, system, or service that uses covered telecommunication equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.”
- 2. Beginning August 13, 2020: the US federal government may not enter a contract with a manufacturer, reseller, or integrator that “uses any equipment, system, or service that uses covered telecommunication equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.”
