WASHINGTON – ITI today issued the following statement in response to the proposed rule and request for comment on Executive Order 13873, Securing the Information and Communications Technology and Services (ICTS) Supply Chain:

“A trusted, secure, and reliable global supply chain is necessary to support innovation and economic growth,” said Jason Oxman, ITI’s President and CEO. “We appreciate the Trump Administration’s ongoing efforts to develop a fact-based and focused analysis of the national security risks posed by certain information and communications technology transactions. We also appreciate the Commerce Department’s wise decision to issue proposed rather than final rules to maximize the ability of the Department to account for crucial industry feedback. The tech industry will continue to engage with the White House, Commerce, and other stakeholders to ensure this process furthers important national security imperatives while allowing U.S. innovation to thrive as it is finalized.”
