How Does the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act Affect Importers?
President Biden signed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) into law in December 2021. Beginning on June 21, 2022, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will apply a “rebuttable presumption” that all goods originating from China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region violate an existing ban on the importation of goods made with forced labor into the US.
This webinar will feature an in-depth presentation to understand the Act and how it creates significant new due diligence requirements for the industry.
