Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act: Implementation and Enforcement Update
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) went into effect on June 21, 2022, and companies have been grappling with how to quickly implement new practices and procedures to ensure their imported goods comply with the new legislation and are allowed entry into the U.S. Both U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Department of Homeland Security issued guidance documents in June to assist importers in understanding some of the types of information that the government will require if an importer argues that its goods were not made with forced labor. CBP has been actively detaining goods under the UFLPA and, to date, importers have largely been unable to provide CBP with sufficient information to obtain release of their goods.

This webinar will discuss:

• The current enforcement status of the UFLPA, and the employment of tools recommended by CBP to demonstrate that no forced labor exists in the sourcing of a good, such as supply chain mapping and the development of a forced labor compliance program.
• Best practices for companies seeking to navigate the forced labor laws not only in the U.S., but also in China that implemented the Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law in 2022.
• What is on the horizon for companies in Europe in the forced labor area, both at the national and EU-wide levels.

PRESENTERS: Crowell & Moring Los Angeles partners David Stepp, a trade attorney who provides multinational companies with strategic advice on global customs and international trade compliance matters, and Evan Chuck, who has more than 25 years of international trade experience and also leads the firm’s Asia practice.
