What Are NDAA Compliant Security Cameras?
In August 2020, the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) was established as law. Essentially, this regulation prohibits the sale, procurement, and use of specific brands of security equipment that can be used by federal agencies. If you provide or install surveillance cameras at government facilities to government officials for government properties, you need to make sure that you adhere to the new NDAA regulations. The most important thing is to make sure that the manufacturer of your security camera components and the cameras themselves are not on the banned list.
Surveillance Camera Brands
That Are NOT on the NDAA Compliant List
The NDAA Compliance act states that any essential or substantial components of a surveillance system that are manufactured by these companies are also banned. For instance, you could have a surveillance camera that is made by an approved company, but it employs a chip that was created by Hikvision rendering the camera out of compliance.
A major hurdle for compliance is complicated by the fact that many federal agencies already use this surveillance equipment and technologies that are now prohibited.
