How Does the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act Affect U.S. Companies?
Join us for an ACSS webinar on the implications of the new federal law, the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).
On December 23, 2021, the UFLPA was signed into law. The UFLPA is designed to ensure that goods made in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China do not enter the US market.
Effective June 21, 2022, the law creates a rebuttable presumption that any work performed in China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) is presumed to be forced.
The Act is broad and has the potential to impact a wide range of industries with supply chain links to the People’s Republic of China.The potential impact of the UFLPA on procurement and supply chain operations could be significant, particularly in specific industries.
In this members-only webinar, you will learn how this new US Federal law will impact procurement, including multi-tier sourcing implications.
