Government regulations — including the U.S.’ Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) — enforcement actions, headlines, and industry best practices have all drawn attention to concerns surrounding forced labor and human rights in global supply chains.
The UFLPA significantly expands compliance requirements for industry to ensure that goods made with forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of the People's Republic of China do not enter the United States. Furthermore, the U.S. government presumes that all items made in Xinjiang were produced using forced labor, with the burden of proof resting on importers to provide “clear and convincing evidence” that materials, parts, and goods "originating in China were not mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part" in Xinjiang.
