National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

The global business landscape is complex, especially as organizations and operations grow increasingly connected. One worldwide issue our industry is facing is the threat – real and perceived – of cybersecurity and its potentially wide-ranging implications for security and surveillance.

Cybersecurity is a key component of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), effective August 13, 2019, specifically section 889. This section outlines the prohibited use of certain video surveillance, telecommunications services, equipment and components manufactured by specific vendors. For our partners and customers, these regulations can affect international supply chains, GSA contracts and even currently deployed technologies, especially if the customer is a U.S. government-related agency.

Hanwha Techwin is committed to complying with all government and international trade regulations. Hanwha Techwin supports NDAA-compliance across its product lines and has a full suite of trade-compliant devices, with many currently used in government, defense and a range of commercial applications.

All Hanwha Techwin manufacturing facilities are located in Vietnam and South Korea, making them compliant with Trade Agreements Act (TAA) terms and qualifying Hanwha Techwin products for sale under GSA guidelines.

Hanwha’s top priority is being a good partner to its customers, dealers and system integrators – and that means making it as easy as possible to work with us.
