US to extend Huawei waiver for another 90 days


US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Monday that the US government will extend a reprieve given to Huawei Technologies that permits the company to purchase products from American firms.

The “temporary general license” will be extended for Huawei for 90 days, Ross told Fox Business Network Monday. The waiver was granted in May shortly after the US blacklisted the company in a move aimed at minimising disruption for its customers.

The 90-day extension “is intended to afford consumers across America the necessary time to transition away from Huawei equipment, given the persistent national security and foreign policy threat,” the Commerce Department said in a statement on Monday.

Ross also said he was adding 46 additional Huawei affiliates that will be added to the Entity List, the so-called economic blacklist.

The extension, through Nov. 18, renews an agreement continuing the Chinese company’s ability to maintain existing telecommunications networks and provide software updates to Huawei handsets.

The Commerce Department said on Monday it is now requiring the exporter, re-exporter, or transferor to obtain a certification statement from any Huawei entity prior to using the temporary general license.
