NDAA Do Not Buy List

NDAA Prohibited Manufacturers

To ensure compliance with the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), it is important to discontinue the use of equipment manufactured by certain Chinese manufacturers. If you need assistance in this process, you can work with our NDAA team members. They can provide you with detailed guidance on how to navigate the discontinuation of products from banned manufacturers and ensure adherence to the NDAA regulations.


Since 2019, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has implemented restrictions on the utilization of equipment produced by a specific group of Chinese manufacturers.

2020 Update: More Manufacturers Added

This set of Chinese companies was expanded in the most recent 2020 NDAA. A list of banned companies is shown below. 

Why NDAA Compliance Matters: Effects on Funding

In order to secure funding from the federal government, it is mandatory for any organization working as a contractor for a federal agency to adhere to this prohibition. 

Your Role: Work with us to Discontinue Use of Prohibited Equipment

For example: The Office of Information Assurance (OIA) leverages network management data to detect equipment on the UC San Diego network that violates this prohibition. Once identified, the person responsible for the equipment will be notified, and a plan for remediation will be devised. Typically, such equipment must be promptly removed from the network.

If you are currently utilizing equipment manufactured by any of the prohibited companies, we urge you to reach out to us immediately before taking any steps to remove it. Understanding and interpreting the regulations can be challenging, and we are available to assist you in determining whether your equipment falls within the scope of the prohibition.

For further assistance, please contact us at NDAA@worldeyecam.com.

Additional Information

The prohibition also encompasses the utilization of cell phones manufactured by the prohibited vendors for any university-related activities. This is particularly relevant for staff members who currently possess Huawei phones, as these devices are strictly prohibited for university business purposes.

When considering the purchase of new video equipment, it is crucial to be mindful of the explicit mention of video surveillance or security cameras in the NDAA. Compliance with this regulation should be a top priority.
