As detailed in the HCSEC Oversight Board report, the HCSEC work programme is

determined by a risk-based prioritisation scheme and their plan of evaluation is driven by

the commercial rollout of services by the UK operators that use Huawei equipment. The

operators, NCSC and the HCSEC collaboratively prioritise the work of HCSEC. Providing

further details on what equipment has, and has not, been subject to HCSEC evaluation is

commercially sensitive.
