Bipartisan bill in U.S. Senate aims to reinstate ZTE ban

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

The decision by President Trump and the Department of Commerce to lift ZTE's ban on importing U.S. components has drawn plenty of criticism. Not only was it ZTE's second time breaking U.S. law, but many believe Chinese OEMs like ZTE and Huawei to be security threats. Now a number of senators plan to introduce a bill that will reinstate the import ban.

Republican senator Tom Cotton (Arkansas) and Democrat Chris Van Hollen (Maryland) have announced an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would once again block ZTE from importing U.S.

ZTE agrees to $1 billion fines, replaces board of directors, to continue US operations

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

After the U.S. Department of Commerce banned ZTE from importing US-made components, due to the company violating an agreement it made in 2017, ZTE shut down most operations while it fought to lift the ban. Earlier this month, Trump announced he wanted to help ZTE, as part of negotiating a trade deal with China.

The President said the company would have to pay a $1.3 billion fine and change management for the ban to be lifted, and a few days ago, ZTE reportedly reached an agreement with the Department of Commerce.

President Trump working with China to reverse ZTE trade ban

Sunday, May 13th, 2018

ZTE was accused of dodging United States sanctions on Iran in 2016, by selling technology from the U.S. to Iran through multiple shell companies. The U.S. Department of Commerce threatened to cut off ZTE from all its supply chain partners in the United States, which ZTE avoided by paying nearly a billion dollars in fines.

The ban went into force last month, after the DoC said ZTE had not complied with the agreement by not disciplining select employees involved in the operation.

ZTE responds to US ban, says it will ‘take judicial measures’ if necessary

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

ZTE was caught dodging US sanctions on Iran two years ago. To avoid a possible US import ban (ZTE is based in China), it paid nearly a billion dollars in fines. Part of the settlement required ZTE to fire four executives and discipline 35 others. Earlier this week, the US Department of Commerce said ZTE had not disciplined or reduced bonuses for the 35 employees. As such, the company was barred from importing US tech (including Qualcomm processors) for seven years.

The Department of Commerce announced today that all American companies are now banned from selling components to ZTE, due to the company violating the terms of the sanctions case.
