The US Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) terminated the ZTE Denial Order, effective today.  As a result, ZTE is no longer subject to any specific US export control restrictions (except for ZTE Parsian, an Iranian affiliate that remains on the BIS Entity List).  ZTE still faces a series of stringent requirements that will last 10 years, pursuant to its settlement with BIS, and any failure to comply could lead to a reactivation of the Denial Order.  The Commerce Department issued a press release describing these developments in more detail.  A bipartisan legislative effort continues to try to impose similar restrictions on ZTE, but the fate of that effort remains unclear.
