Multi Association Letter - ICTS Supply Chain Proposed Rule

The undersigned associations respectfully submit this letter on behalf of our member companies regarding the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (“Department” or “Commerce”) proposed rule to implement Executive Order 13873, Securing the Information and Communications Technology and Services (“ICTS”) Supply Chain (“proposed rule” or “proposal”). As written, the proposed rule would provide the U.S. government with the authority to intervene in, block, and unwind certain ICTS transactions on national security grounds. As longtime partners in the U.S. government’s efforts to provide national security while strengthening our economy and technology leadership, we welcome the opportunity to share an overview of our members’ views on the proposed rule. We look forward to working with the Department to shape a rule that both addresses national security risk while simultaneously supporting U.S. innovation and promoting the growth of the U.S. economy.
