US chipmaker Micron fails Chinese authorization check
BEIJING (Sputnik) — China’s Cyberspace Administration announced on Sunday that U.S. chipmaker Micron would be banned from selling to critical infrastructure operators after it was found to pose a national security risk.
“The review found that Micron’s products pose a significant network security risk, making them a major threat to the security of the country’s critical information infrastructure supply chains that can affect the national security,” the statement said.
The regulator stressed that China remains open to foreign companies as long as they follow the law.
A British business newspaper reported in April that the United States had asked South Korea to limit semiconductor exports to China after it launched a security investigation into Micron. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning called the review a “normal regulatory action” and criticized the United States for breaking trade rules.
