The U.S. government is increasingly taking steps to mitigate risks across the industrial and innovation supply chain with regard to hardware, software, and services. Some of these initiatives originated in the Trump and Biden Administrations, but others are driven by recent legislative activity.  In particular, recent actions to restrict the use of Chinese telecoms and other products have now been followed by additional restrictions on printed circuit boards made in China, Russia, North Korea, or Iran and multiple supply chain reviews prompted by Executive Orders. Many of these efforts follow the trend of similar restrictions and procedures established by the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 and the Strengthening and Enhancing Cyber-capabilities by Utilizing Risk Exposure (SECURE) Technology Act.

In this Briefing, Covington & Burling LLP’s Susan B. Cassidy, Samantha L. Clark and Mike Wagner will focus on the following topics:

  • The new commerce transaction review established by the ICTS Executive Order – 12 minutes;
  • The review process and categories established by the Executive Order on America’s Supply Chains – 12 minutes;
  • Potential impacts to industry from the Made in America Executive Order – 12 minutes;
  • The exclusion and removal authority delegated to the inter-agency Federal Acquisition Security Council – 12 minutes; and
  • The new requirements of Section 841 restricting the U.S. Department of Defense's (DoD’s) acquisition of printed circuit boards manufactured in China, Russia, North Korea, or Iran – 12 minutes.

Attendees should have a foundational knowledge of supply chain security issues.  Outside counsel, in-house attorneys, and industry professionals responsible for monitoring supply chain security and implementing compliance programs will find this presentation instructive.
