The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) assumes that all goods originating from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) are produced using forced labor and prohibits their importation into the United States. Following suit, the European Commission proposed new legislation on September 14th that would effectively ban all products made using forced labor from their market. With more countries around the world starting to address forced labor in the supply chain, global trade professionals worldwide will continue to be challenged on how to manage their operations to ensure compliance.
This Global Trade Academy 1-day advanced course offers a clear understanding of forced labor and how it’s defined, in addition to providing strategies on how to build a forced labor compliance program that will mitigate risk to your company’s global trade operations.
