Guidance: The U.S. Department of Commerce has decided to postpone a partial trade ban on Huawei once again.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (Reporter Zhou Zhou Zhou) The U.S. Department of Commerce decided to extend a “temporary general license” for 90 days, postponing once again the trade ban on Huawei and its affiliates’existing products and services in the United States, in order to avoid the negative impact of the ban on U.S. consumers.

The U.S. Department of Commerce issued a statement on the same day, saying that within 90 days from August 19, U.S. enterprises with temporary general licenses can export, re-export and transfer “specific” and “limited” products or technologies to Huawei and its non-U.S. affiliates.

On May 15, the U.S. Department of Commerce listed Huawei and its 68 affiliates as entities; on May 20, it issued a 90-day “temporary general license” to allow Huawei and its affiliates to engage in “specific activities” in order to ensure the continued operation of existing relevant networks in the United States and provide support for relevant mobile services in the United States.

The statement said the extension of the “temporary general license” was intended to give American consumers more time to adapt. “We recognize the need to give more time to avoid chaos,” U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said in a statement.

The statement said that export, re-export and transfer of products or technology outside the “temporary general license” in the United States still need to obtain the relevant license issued by the Industrial and Safety Bureau under the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the default status of review is rejection.

The U.S. Department of Commerce also said in a statement that another 46 Huawei affiliates would be included in the list of entities, which came into effect on August 19.

A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Wednesday in Beijing that he hoped the United States would “stop unreasonable repression and sanctions against Chinese enterprises such as Huawei and treat Chinese enterprises in a fair, fair and non-discriminatory manner”.
