Forced labor continues to threaten the supply chains of companies that rely on Chinese manufacturing. The advisory highlights the reputational, economic, and legal risk for businesses whose supply chains may be exposed to human rights abuses in Xinjiang.
You need to determine whether your suppliers show up in these reports, but inconsistent company name translations and scant identifiers present a challenge. Avoid these pitfalls by verifying names and identifying information (e.g. addresses, ID numbers, Chinese/English names) in official sources.
Use Chinese public records to identify companies at high risk for labor abuses before they are exposed in the media or targeted by regulators. Look for the following indicators of forced labor in Chinese manufacturing, all of which can be found in public records.
If one of your supplier’s parents or subsidiaries employs forced labor, your supply chain could still be exposed. Using Sayari Graph, you can surface these indicators across millions of Chinese corporate records and proactively identify forced labor risk in your supply chain.
