The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has proposed new rules that would prevent U.S. communications networks from using equipment made by a handful of Chinese companies deemed as national security threats, including telecom giants Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTE Corp.

The proposed regulation also seeks to revoke prior authorizations issued to five Chinese companies that allowed U.S. networks to use their equipment, the telecom regulator said in a statement Thursday.

In addition to Huawei and ZTE, the targeted companies include wireless communication equipment maker Hytera Communications Corp. Ltd., and surveillance camera suppliers Hangzhou HIK Vision Digital Technology Co. and Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co.

The FCC in March designated all five companies as national security risks.

The commission said it is now seeking comments from the public on the new proposal.

Huawei, ZTE, Hytera, Hangzhou HIK Vision and Zhejiang Dahua didn't immediately respond to requests for comments.
