The U.S. announced it is banning exports of quantum technology to Chinese companies they believe might be used in military and espionage operations.

The US is blacklisting about a dozen Chinese groups involved in quantum computing and other advanced technologies, according to The Financial Times.

The blacklist is meant to stop the export of technologies that may pose a risk of gaining access to critical American technologies for the People’s Liberation Army.

The ban involves a total of 27 firms, including 12 in China and Singapore.

In the official announcement, U.S. Commerce Department writes: “These twenty-seven entities have been determined by the U.S. Government to be acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. These entities will be listed on the Entity List under the destinations of the People’s Republic of China (China), Japan, Pakistan and Singapore issued the list.”

The entire list of companies is available here.

China’s swift development of quantum technology and that technology’s ability to affect national security and secrecy are seen as reasons for the blacklist. In fact, FT reports that eight of the Chinese groups are being stopped specifically from acquiring quantum technologies that may help the People’s Liberation Army acquire counter-stealth and counter-submarine technologies, the FT reports.

The list includes 13 Pakistani firms that were placed on the list for activities related to nuclear and ballistic missile programs. The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology to a “military end-user” list.
