On August 7, 2019, the White House issued a provisional rule prohibiting government agencies from directly purchasing communications equipment, video surveillance equipment and other services from five Chinese companies, including Huawei. This ban is required by the Defense Authority Act (NDAA) enacted in 2018 and will come into effect on August 13, 2019.

The rules are subject to five companies: Huawei, ZTE , Hikvision , Hytera and Dahua . NDAA was originally a law that determined the defense budget framework for the fiscal year 2019 and was signed in August 2018. While NDAA allows military spending on the order of several hundred billion yen, it restricts some government agencies and government contractors from doing business with Chinese companies. The provisional rules announced this time are based on the restrictions set out in this NDAA.

However, Huawei said to the NDAA that 'there is no evidence that it is prohibited to use or trade.' 'It is unusual to use the power of the state to pursue private companies. There is no example, ”and in May 2019, NDAA was unconstitutional and filed with the Texas District Court.
