What is NDAA Compliance?
NDAA compliance refers to adherence to the provisions and requirements outlined in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The NDAA is an annual legislation passed by the United States Congress that authorizes the budget and sets policies for the Department of Defense and other national security programs.
In terms of compliance, NDAA imposes certain restrictions and obligations on companies and entities that do business with the U.S. government or are involved in defense-related industries. One notable provision is Section 889, which prohibits the use of certain telecommunications and video surveillance equipment or services from specific companies, primarily those considered to pose a potential national security risk.
To achieve NDAA compliance, organizations need to ensure that their products, services, and supply chains do not involve any prohibited hardware or technology specified in the legislation. This often requires conducting thorough due diligence, vetting suppliers, and ensuring compliance with the specific requirements outlined in the NDAA, such as Section 889.
NDAA compliance has placed a ban on several video surveillance manufacturers, specifically Dahua, Hikvision, and Huawei. There are still many NDAA compliant manufacturers which may be used on federal property, including:
- Axis Communications
- BCD International
- Seek Thermal
- 360 Vision Technology
Should I Replace My Current Surveillance Cameras with NDAA Compliant Cameras?
NDAA compliant cameras are particularly important for businesses, organizations, and individuals operating in sectors closely linked to defense, national security, or critical infrastructure. This includes industries such as government agencies, military installations, defense contractors, sensitive facilities, research institutions, and any other entities involved in projects or contracts with national security implications. By using NDAA compliant security camera systems, they can align with industry standards, meet government contract requirements, and mitigate potential risks associated with non-compliant equipment.
The decision to use NDAA compliant cameras should be based on a comprehensive assessment of industry relevance, contractual requirements, risk analysis, and the specific needs of the organization or individual. Consulting with legal and security experts can provide further guidance tailored to the specific context and compliance obligations.
