WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Wednesday, said it was reviewing license applications from US companies who wanted to export products to Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. of China “under the highest national security scrutiny,” since that is the company still on the black list.

In e-mail to Reuters, the Department of Commerce said that, as it reviewed applications, the “presumption of disclaimer” standard relating to Entity Listed companies was being applied, meaning that applications were unlikely to be approved. .
President Donald Trump was surprised at Saturday's markets to allow US companies to sell products to Huawei (HWT.UL), which was placed on the May List of Entities in May over national security concerns.
The SAS manufacturers, who were looking for carving for technology exports that were less sensitive to the world's best telecoms manufacturer, welcomed the news.
But four days after Trump's announcement on the G20 lines in Japan, uncertainty as to how Huawei's ban will be reduced has encouraged both industry and government officials to understand the new policy.
In an email to the Monday enforcement team, seen by Reuters, John Sonderman, Deputy Director of the Office of Export Enforcement in the Department of Commerce looked at the Department's Industry and Security Bureau, to clarify how agents should go dealing with license applications by firms seeking permission to sell Huawei.
All such applications should be considered on merit, wrote, stating regulations including the “refusal” licensing policy.
A spokesperson for the Commercial Department said on Wednesday that the Department intends to notify companies of export license applications when the review is complete.
White House trade consultant Peter Navarro said earlier this week that the government would allow sales of “high tech” chips that do not affect national security, in line with similar views from the chairman of Larry Kudlow of the National Economic Council.
The United States has accused Huawei of stealing the US intellectual property and violating Iran's sanctions.
He launched a lobbying attempt to convince U. Huawei colleagues to keep the next generation 5G telecommunications infrastructure, citing concerns that the company could expect from customers. Huawei denied the allegations.
Trump unveiled Huawei's policy change as a olive branch of Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of a drive to revive trade talks between the two best economies in the world, which was engaged in trade trade.
