Huawei has long been dedicated to complying with all applicable laws and regulations of the countries and regions in which it operates. These include all applicable export control and sanction laws and regulations of the UN, China, US, and EU. We have worked hard for more than 10 years to establish a mature and sustainable internal system for trade compliance in line with industry best practices.
We have also brought in industry best practices and established an integrated trade compliance management organization within the company. This organization manages trade compliance across both group functions and field offices. We have also established specialist teams in our global offices that track changes to local laws, integrate trade compliance into the company’s rules and processes, and manage and oversee trade compliance in each link of our business operations, ranging from procurement, R&D, and sales, to supply and services.
Huawei continuously works to increase employee awareness of trade compliance, and requires them to sign the BCGs each year, which includes commitments to observing applicable export control laws and regulations. Huawei provides a wide variety of training on trade compliance to managers and employees across the company. These efforts, combined with targeted training for specific business scenarios, allow employees to fully understand the company’s and their own responsibilities and obligations regarding export control.
Ever since Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. and some of its affiliates were added to the Entity List by the US Department of Commerce, the company has reiterated the importance of compliance with export control and work to ensure control measures are in place. We have also promptly communicated with our customers, suppliers, and other partners, enhancing mutual understanding and trust.
