The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) reversed on Sunday restrictions it slapped on Huawei last week, letting the Chinese company’s scientists review its papers once again.

“Our initial, more restrictive approach was motivated solely by our desire to protect our volunteers and our members from legal risk,” the US publisher wrote in its statement.

Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
