The United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced this Friday (25) a ban on the importation or sale in the country of equipment from five Chinese companies.

The statement cites ‚Äúunacceptable risk to national security‚ÄĚ and points out that the measure covers equipment from Huawei, ZTE (telecommunications), Hytera (radio communicators and radio systems), Hangzhou Hikvision and Dahua (video surveillance), as well as their subsidiaries and affiliates.

The order applies to future equipment authorizations, but there are the possibility that prior permissions are also covered.

‚ÄúThe FCC is committed to protecting our national security by ensuring that unreliable communications equipment is not authorized for use within our borders, and we are continuing this work with this measure‚ÄĚ, pointed out in the statement the president of the commission, Jessica Rosenworcel.

‚ÄúThese new rules are an important part of our continued actions to protect the American people from threats to national security involving telecommunications‚ÄĚ, he added.
