The release by the US Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security takes effect immediately and runs through the end of the month.
Under the new order, state-owned ZTE would now be allowed to support its existing handsets in the U.S. and continue operation of existing networks, among some other activities.

But in an agreement struck last month, Washington offered to lift the ban if the company agreed to pay an additional $1 billion fine, replace its board of directors, retain outside monitors and put $400 million in escrow to cover any future penalties.

They included vice presidents Wang Keyou, Xie Jiepeng and Ma Jie, who were in charge of the legal, finance and supply chain departments, respectively.
