Update on Recent U.S. Legislative Amendment

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill on May 24 that includes an amendment prohibiting the federal government from purchasing video security equipment from certain China-based manufacturers citing alleged security threats. Hikvision—along with other Chinese companies—is mentioned in the amendment. The bill has not made it through the entire legislative process and has not been signed into law.
As a global enterprise, Hikvision takes cybersecurity very seriously and abides by all applicable laws and regulations in the countries in which we operate. We also reaffirm the fact that we hold our products to the industry’s global cybersecurity standards. The amendment prohibiting the U.S. federal government purchasing video security equipment from China-based manufacturers was made without a complete accounting of the facts and with no evidence to justify the claims made by its sponsors.
Cybersecurity is one of the biggest challenges facing the security industry today. As the industry’s leader, Hikvision vigilantly addresses cybersecurity threats and helps establish industry standards and best practices. Hikvision has integrated cybersecurity systems and protocols into the complete life cycle of its products: from development to testing, manufacturing, delivery and service. Hikvision is committed to continuous improvement and will keep providing customers with high quality, reliable technology products designed to keep people and property and communities safe.
As we continue to monitor the bill as it moves through the legislative process, we will fight this amendment and vigorously defend Hikvision from false and unproven accusations about the security of our products and solutions.
