Buy America & Country of Origin: Sanctions and other Prohibited Sources



We’ve spent the last 8 sessions discussing when certain products or services receive preferential treatment based on their country of origin. In the last of our 9-part series, the Sheppard Mullin Supply Chain Management team flips the script, focusing on products and services that generally are banned from acquisitions and programs utilizing federal, and even state, funds. We focus on the U.S. sanctions program administered by the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, and we dive deeper in to key acquisition prohibitions, such as the 2018 ban on certain covered telecommunications equipment produced by Huawei and other Chinese-owned entities.

In this session, we will cover:

  • Government sanctions programs, including prohibited sources;
  • Updates on the Section 889 prohibition of purchasing and using certain Chinese-made telecommunications equipment;
  • Implications of U.S. laws that sanction Chinese entities using forced labor
