Section 307 of the Tariff Act of 1930 prohibits the importation of goods made wholly or in part with forced labor. U.S. Customs and Border Protection administers this law through various tools, from initial auditing questionnaires to abrupt detention of merchandise at the border. Most of the media attention on forced labor has been on China, but CBP’s focus is on supply chain transparency for all products regardless of origin. The U.S. and governments from around the world are also considering new legislation that could soon provide new enforcement tools. Importers are responsible for understanding their supply chain beyond Tier 1 and instead must be aware “from earth to hearth.”
This webinar will discuss ST&R’s Stocktaking, Testing + Tracing, and Response program to enhance importers’ supply chain visibility.
Join us to discuss how enforcement of Section 307 could impact your imports and what you can do to mitigate risks.
