The Trump administration has begun to release new rules as part of the ban of purchases by government contractors from certain Chinese tech companies.
The five companies include Huawei, which has become the focus of national security concerns in the U.S.
The United States claims Huawei is connected to the Chinese government and steals American intellectual property.
Huawei denies the allegations but is now a major point in the ongoing trade war with China.
One of the first rules to be implemented is expected to take effect this month, with the entire ban going into effect next year.
However, a sixty-day comment period will allow agencies to make exceptions and grant waivers to some companies.
Despite that, it’s still unknown how this will affect contractors as a whole.
