According to a new Reuters report, the Commerce Department and other relevant agencies have approved a change in the rules to allow American companies to work with Huawei on setting standards for 5G networks.
The move comes after previous United States restrictions against the Chinese company, which holds a leading position in 5G standards processes, resulted in reduced participation by USA companies in standards processes.
A Huawei spokeswoman, Michelle Zhou, had no immediate comment.
"The United States will not cede leadership in global innovation", he said, adding: "The department is committed to protecting U.S. national security and foreign policy interests by encouraging USA industry to fully engage and advocate for USA technologies to become worldwide standards".
We previously reported that a new law was being drafted for the same goal - it looks that has come to fruition and the US Commerce Department have signed off a rule change that will see Huawei contribute their technology to the US' 5G infrastructure.
"The Department is committed to protecting USA national security and foreign policy interests by encouraging US industry to fully engage and advocate for USA technologies to become worldwide standards", he added. Whether the claims levelled at the Chinese company are true or false, the company has had to deal with the fallout of the usa government's decision to place a ban on American companies' dealings with Huawei.

The wireless networks are supposed to power everything from high-speed video transmissions to self-driving cars. However, the official clarified that their policies inadvertently led to US firms losing their seat at the table to Huawei and others on the list of entities.
The amendment comes a little more than a year after the US placed Huawei on the Commerce Department's so-called "entity list", thereby restricting sales of USA goods and technology to the company on national security concerns.
The Huawei ban put in place last May has effectively suspended technological cooperation between American companies and the Chinese handset giant, a state of affairs that many government officials and tech industry players have warned will hamper the U.S.'s ability to participate in the global 5G standards-setting process. For this reason, some American company engineers have reduced their participation, giving the Chinese manufacturer a greater say.
The new rule came in response to concerns from USA companies and lawmakers, a person briefed on the matter said.
As a result, U.S. technology companies stopped engaging in standards processes, reportedly giving Huawei a stronger voice in some standards bodies.
"Confusion stemming from the May 2019 entity list update had inadvertently sidelined United States companies from some technical standards conversations, putting them at a strategic disadvantage".
