The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued an order banning the sale of electronic equipment by Huawei, ZTE, Hikvision, Dahua and Hytera in the country.

The FCC considers the Chinese companies to be a threat to data security.

The FCC is committed to protecting our national security by ensuring that untrustworthy communications equipment is not authorized for use within our borders, and we are continuing that work here,

Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a news release.

Dahua and Hikvision are widely used by government agencies with large numbers of facilities for surveillance, and police use Hytera handheld radios.

US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping reportedly did not discuss the FCC's decision in a bilateral meeting in Indonesia, but the US president made clear that the US would continue to take measures to protect its national security.

In 2018, the purchase of equipment from the listed Chinese brands was banned to all US government agencies, unable to obtain federal subsidies.
