Confusion builds over U.S. ban on Chinese surveillance technology

Contractors who buy and install Hikvision and Dahua surveillance systems told U.S. officials on Friday that an ambiguous law that bans purchases from the two Chinese companies could harm their businesses. Contractors voiced their confusion at a U.S. General Services Administration meeting about the provision in last year’s National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, that prohibits federal agencies from purchasing new equipment from those Chinese companies.

The deadline to comply with the ban on purchasing new equipment is Aug. 13.
