Investigative Techniques for Mitigating Xinjiang Forced Labor Risk Under the UFLPA

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) requires U.S. importers to screen not just all goods, but also all inputs used in the manufacture of those goods, for Xinjiang forced labor risk. Daunting in any circumstance, this mandate is made all the more challenging by trade and travel fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-transparency measures by the Chinese state, and the growing complexity of global supply chains. Thankfully, publicly available data gleaned from such sources as corporate filings and government registries can go a long way toward screening supply chains for forced labor risk. It’s all a matter of knowing what to look for and how to look for it. This ebook demonstrates actionable investigative tactics in a series of case studies and includes:

  • How to screen company attributes for forced labor risk
  • How to spot forced labor risk in related companies
  • Which public data sources have the most helpful information
