Ofilm Group (欧菲光), a Chinese camera modules manufacturer, announced on July 29 that its subsidiary in southeastern Nanchang City has been removed from the U.S. Entity List.

The statement said that the U.S. End-User Review Committee (ERC) made a final decision on June 28, 2022 to officially remove Nanchang Ofilm Tech Co., Ltd from the Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) Entity List.

The company was added to the Entity List on July 20, 2020. Two days later, Ofilm issued a statement calling on the U.S. to re-examine the decision, hoping to be treated fairly and justly. In 2021, Ofilm was dropped by its key customer Apple, bringing the company huge losses.

The Shenzhen-headquartered company is now actively expanding new businesses in markets including intelligent vehicles, smart homes and VR/AR, in addition to its main businesses in the smartphone industry.

Ofilm has nearly 20,000 workers across the globe, with manufacturing and R&D locations in the Silicon Valley, China’s mainland, the Taiwan region, Japan, Korea, and Israel.

Nanchang Ofilm was established in October 2010. Its main product is touch screen, covering the markets of smartphones, tablets, notebooks and all-in-one computers.
