FCC Denies Huawei’s Request for Review of National Security Threat Designation

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decided to uphold its designation of Huawei Technologies as a national security threat after it voted to deny the company’s request for a review of FCC’s order in June 2020.

The denial of Huawei’s application for review of the order by the commission's public safety and homeland security bureau suggests that organizations may no longer use FCC’s Universal Service Fund to buy, maintain, modify or support any services or equipment from the company, the commission said Thursday.

“In denying that application, the Commission today recognized the overwhelming evidence of Huawei’s close ties to the Chinese Communist Party and China’s military and intelligence apparatus, and affirmed the Bureau’s determination that Huawei poses a threat to the security and integrity of the nation’s communications networks or the communications supply chain,” the FCC notice reads.
