On August 19, 2019, the U.S. Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) revised the “temporary general license” or “TGL” we had previously highlighted to further restrict exports to Huawei and its affiliates, effective immediately and expiring on November 18, 2019.*  The revised TGL limits permissible exports, eliminates export authorization for non-public activities associated with 5G standard implementation, and requires a new Certification Statement to be signed by, and obtained from, Huawei or affiliates prior to export.

As a result of the revised TGL, entities that were using the original TGL as a basis for export to Huawei and related entities may not be able to continue export activity that is no longer covered by the revised TGL. For exports still included in the revised TGL, exports cannot continue until the Certification Statement is obtained from Huawei.
