It is reported that the regulation will take effect on the 13th of this month. In addition to Huawei, the regulation also prohibits US government agencies from purchasing telecommunications and video surveillance equipment and services from four other Chinese companies, such as ZTE.
In addition, the US government has one year to meet the broader restrictions of the NDAA - prohibiting federal agencies from cooperating with contractors using Huawei and other proscribed companies' products and services.
Huawei said that the news is expected, and they will continue to challenge the constitutionality of the ban. ZTE did not immediately respond to the matter.
