Managing Forced Labor Risks: Getting Ahead of Increased Enforcement

Webcast overview

Preventing forced labor in U.S. supply chains has become a priority issue for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”), with the last year bringing a surge of enforcement actions. Many importers are closely examining their supply chains to assess potential vulnerabilities but having the downstream visibility into sourcing and production necessary to satisfy government inquiries is challenging. As companies grapple with emerging requirements, there are practical steps that can be taken to limit the risk of forced labor creeping into supply chains.

In this 1-hour webcast, the KPMG team will be joined by Slone Pearson, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel, Global Trade at Fortive, a diversified industrial growth company. The discussion will focus on a number of important topics that will help companies assess their risks and develop a compliance plan. Topics include:

  • Understanding the current landscape;
  • Recent enforcement actions and CBP guidance;
  • Common challenges in achieving compliance; and
  • Strategies for mitigating risk in your Sustainability Programs.
