UFLPA Has Achieved a Lot in a Short Period of Time
Forced labor continues to run rampant throughout China but specifically in the Xinjiang province. The implementation of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) has borne significant results in the short time it has been enacted advised Howard Mendelsohn, a chief client officer for Kharon, a risk intelligence service provider. Almost $2 billion dollars’ worth of imports have been detained. Mendelsohn went on to say that CBP approach is simple, advising importers “We believe these goods at subject to Uyghur Forced labor or prove otherwise.”
Uyghur forced labor enforcement focus began with apparel, but now is transitioning to automotive and aerospace industries.
