Kharon x Robert Silvers Fireside chat - on demand

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), passed with strong bipartisan support, sets out to protect human rights by prohibiting the importation of goods produced wholly or in part with forced labor from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of China. Enforcement of the UFLPA has been robust, with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) detaining over $3 billion worth of goods in under two years. American industry has also stepped up, investing in controls and due diligence capabilities to root out exposure in supply chains and to build resilience and sustainability.

In our hour-long conversation with the Department of Homeland Security's Robert Silvers, Under Secretary for Policy, we discuss the latest in UFLPA regulatory expectations and enforcement trends.

The discussion addresses U.S. government strategy, the impact of enforcement, and the role of the private sector in leveraging technology and due diligence best practices to identify exposure and mitigate risk.
