National Security Agreement If the proposed foreign acquisition or investment in a U.S. company constitutes a domestic security risk, the acquirer, acquirer, and CFIUS will discuss the domestic security risks. They will negotiate and sign an ASN that will define rules to ensure that security risks are addressed. The NSA will contain a risk reduction plan for the protection of national security issues. ASN sets the conditions under which the covered transaction is authorised. It contains restrictions and controls imposed by CFIUS as a prerequisite for consent to the transaction. ASN can be extended and have a wide range of conditions. The reduction of security risk depends on variables such as the importance of the acquisition from the perspective of national security and/or critical infrastructure.
