Expert Roundtable on the Implications of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act

06/09/22 3 minute read

Since 2017, the People’s Republic of China has subjected some 1.8 million Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and members of other Muslim minority groups to forced labor, torture, political indoctrination, and other severe human rights abuses in what has officially been declared an act of genocide.

In an effort to denounce and eradicate this systematic oppression, Congress has passed the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), which prohibits goods made using forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region from entering the U.S. market.

In this webinar recording, an expert panel discusses the UFLPA’s context and implications, including:

  • How Uyghur forced labor has been systematically infused into the region’s industries
  • What types of goods, wares, and merchandise will be most directly impacted
  • What disclosure requirements and enforcement actions importers can expect
  • U.S. plans to promote Uyghur forced labor sanctions internationally

In July, this two-part series on the UFLPA will conclude with an installment on how public data can be used to identify and mitigate Xinjiang forced labor risk in global supply chains.
