The U.S. Congress passed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) almost one year ago, and it took effect June 21, 2022. The statute created a rebuttable presumption that any goods with any Xinjiang content, no matter how far back in the supply chain, are the product of forced labor and prohibited from U.S. import. But how were importers to know if their goods had Xinjiang inputs, how would U.S. Customs and Border Protection choose which shipments to target, and what kind of documentation would be sufficient to overcome a detention? In this webinar, we will review the details of the presumption (and U.S. forced labor regulation more generally) and discuss lessons learned over the past year, including:
- Assessment of supply chain risk;
- Strategies for responses to detentions; and
- Best practices for due diligence and supply chain tracing.
