After Huawei, the US administration is considering setting up China’s leading manufacturer of surveillance products and solutions ‘Hikvision’ in a blacklist of companies whose access to US technology should be restricted, news reports said on Wednesday.

US administration will make a decision in the coming weeks.

Hikvision, a Hangzhou-based company, founded in 2001, has established that it has “played an active role in the security and surveillance market.” Its products enable customers to track people all over China through facial, body or gait features and help officials monitor unusual activities such as People suddenly run or crowd.

On Thursday, the US Commerce Department added a “blacklist” of companies banned from doing business with US companies without a permit, before some restrictions were relaxed for three months.
