- The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), the leading association representing the manufacturers and suppliers of high-tech communications networks, today applauded the issuance of an executive order on communications equipment security.

"TIA applauds the President for issuing today's executive order on communications equipment security. We fully support the federal government taking action against specific suppliers that are deemed to pose a national security risk to the United States. Today's action will reassure both consumers and industries harnessing communications technology that the networks they rely upon are built with equipment from trusted suppliers.

"As 5G deployments accelerate, this EO will also help provide certainty for service providers and other communications equipment vendors as purchasing decisions are being made. TIA and our members look forward to working closely with the Administration as this EO is implemented in the months ahead, and to meeting the needs of customers who may be directly impacted.

"In addition to addressing specific suppliers, we remain committed to ensuring that all information and communications technology (ICT) equipment manufacturers benefit from secure supply chains. TIA and our members are closely collaborating with the government on supply chain security issues, including through the Department of Homeland Security's ICT Supply Chain Risk Management Task Force.

"These public-private partnerships are essential to leveraging expertise from across the ecosystem to enhance security while enabling innovation to thrive."
