The National Defense Authorization Act, specifically Section 889, among other things prohibits federal agencies, their contractors and grant or loan recipients from procuring or using “telecommunications and video surveillance equipment or services” from specific Chinese companies as a “substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.”

SonicWall & TAA Compliance
The U.S. Trade Agreements Act (TAA) was created, in part, to foster fair international trade with certain designated countries. The U.S. Government is required to obtain products and services that are subject to the Buy American Act and numerous international trade agreements. TAA offers an exception to the Buy American Act by allowing the Government to purchase “foreign end products” only if those products are from designated countries with which the Government has the appropriate trade agreement.
