Understanding and Implementing the “Huawei Ban” in Government Contracts and Grants
Please join Stinson LLP for a timely and informative webinar on managing the new “Huawei Ban” on Wednesday, October 21. The latest set of prohibitions on telecommunications and video surveillance equipment and services from Huawei Technologies Company, ZTE Corporation and other identified Chinese companies (the “Huawei ban”) has gone into effect and is creating major headaches for government contractors, subcontractors and grant recipients.
For over a year, Section 889(a)(1)(A) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 has prohibited contractors and grant recipients from using or delivering covered telecommunications and video surveillance equipment and services in performance of federal government contracts and grants.
But the new rules implementing Section 889(a)(1)(B) extend the prohibition against such equipment and services to include use by contractors and grant recipients anywhere within their enterprise, regardless of whether or not such use relates to the performance of a federal contract or grant. In addition, new annual certification requirements go into effect on October 26, 2020.
During this webinar, we will help you understand:
- What is prohibited under the new rule
- How to determine whether you are covered by the rule’s prohibitions
- How to address the representation and certification requirements of the new rule
- Steps to take to achieve compliance.
