NDAA Compliant Cameras and NVRs
The John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the Fiscal Year 2019 was signed into law in the United States on August 13, 2018. The law, specifically Section 889, prohibits government agencies, their contractors and grant or loan recipients from utilizing or using “telecommunications and video surveillance equipment or services” from specific Chinese organizations as a “substantial or essential component of any system, or as critical technology as part of any system.” The NDAA ban incorporates media communications equipment and video surveillance products from specific Chinese organizations. While there is no such legislation in Canada yet, many organizations are becoming more proactive about this issue and are explicitly asking for NDAA-compliant CCTV and surveillance systems.
