The European Union stopped short of an outright ban on Huawei Technologies and other Chinese 5G suppliers, seeking to navigate a path between warnings from U.S. President Donald Trump and provoking Beijing.

The EU issued a new policy document which urges member states to apply ad hoc restrictions on merit for certain suppliers of key 5G components, including core, network management, access network, and orchestration functions.

Despite intense U.S. lobbying, the so-called toolbox of measures released Wednesday doesn’t recommend a preemptive blanket ban of Chinese equipment, a decision that follows the U.K. on Tuesday allowing Huawei components into non-core networks. EU member states have until April 30 to implement the mitigating measures included in the toolbox.

Calling it a “non-biased and fact-based approach,” Huawei welcomed the EU’s announcement, which it said “enables Huawei to continue participating in Europe’s 5G roll-out.” The Chinese Mission to the EU said it’s “studying and assessing” the toolbox, adding that China hopes that Europe will act “in good faith to foster a fair, open, just and non-discriminatory environment for business investment.”
