NDAA Compliant CamerasOver the next few weeks, we’ll be covering NDAA Compliant Cameras. What are NDAA Compliant Cameras? In 2019 the (NDAA) National Defense Authorization Act introduced new Security Camera Compliance related to Security Camera manufacturers, specifically with sanctions around Hikvision and Dahua and several other manufacturers. 

The US Government started the process in August of 2018 to pass a resolution that became effective on August 1st of 2019 related to security camera manufacturers. This resolution prevented the federal government or any entity who is involved with national security from purchasing security cameras and telecommunications from five key factories in China. At that time, the ban included all or some of the following surveillance providers.

  • Montavue
  • Indigo Vision
  • Panasonic
  • QSee
  • ICRealtime
  • Bosch
  • Flir
  • Interlogix
  • Laview
  • Alibi
  • Annke
  • LTS
  • Swann
  • Lorex
  • Dahua
  • Hikvision
  • Honeywell
  • And many more security products.

Current 2021 actions broaden the scope of the NDAA ban 

While the 2019 NDAA legislation affected federal government surveillance systems, it still allowed for products on the list to be legally sold to consumers and businesses in the United States that were not federally funded.  Sales of these products made up the majority of surveillance product sales in the U.S. market.

However, in June 2021 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began a process to consider whether the sale of all products on the NDAA list should be outright banned in the United States.  At the time of this article, this process was underway.  After going through this process the FCC, which is made up of five commissioners, will vote on whether to prohibit all sales of products on the NDAA list.  If the FCC votes for the ban, these products will no longer be permitted to be sold in the United States.

How does the NDAA ban and FCC action affect you?

If you currently have a Dahua or Hikvision system, or a system that is an OEM of Dahua or Hikvision, and if the FCC takes final action to ban their sale, you should work with an experienced team like CCTV Agent who can guide you on NDAA compliant cameras and system components.  An experienced security camera dealer and installation company can help you find components that are compatible with your system if any of your system components fail or if your existing system cannot be used.
