The number and nature of these sources makes it difficult for contractors to tracking this information to ensure compliance.

We have created the table, below, from the regulations, legislation, and Executive Orders about which we are aware. We will try to keep it up to date, and appreciate any help in adding references that may be missing or in adding other information that makes this list even more useful. Please note that the table does not reflect all of your obligations under the respective laws, regulations, or Executive Orders. For example, you may have reporting other obligations that are not reflected in the table.

While the table includes names of specific hardware manufacturers and software developers, it is important to note that the bans extend beyond just the named companies themselves. In most cases, the bans extend to their subsidiaries and related entities as well, including companies of which they hold a majority ownership. As a contractor you are expected to exercise reasonable diligence in ensuring you are not violating the bans.

The subsidiaries listed in the table come, in part, from research published by the University of Central Florida and the University of Minnesota. Although efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of the information, it is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind. No guarantee is made as to the completeness of the information.
