2022 was a busy year in the financial crime and anti-money laundering world. Our team of analysts have spent countless hours monitoring global events and policy shifts to ensure we understand the climate that analysts and investigators must navigate.

Throughout the year, our team crafted helpful guides and informative masterclasses aimed at helping analysts conduct investigations efficiently and effectively. 

In case you missed it, we’ve compiled a selection of our best materials on the most relevant topics from this year that we hope you’ll find useful in your investigative work.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA)

By barring all commercial inputs with a link to Xinjiang from entering U.S. markets, the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) put additional strain on importers already grappling with supply chain bottlenecks, labor shortages, travel restrictions, rising inflation, and heightened political tension. 

The Sayari Analyst Team compiled a host of strategies for importers looking to stay in compliance with this groundbreaking law aimed at deterring the forced labor industry in China.
