With the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act’s (UFLPA) June 21st implementation, importers are faced with managing regulations that require an unprecedented amount of supply chain visibility. Failure to meet the high-standards this regulation imposes may result in detained or seized imports - placing entire supply chain lanes in jeopardy. However, there are steps that companies can take to mitigate their risk and begin to build an anti-forced labor program.
In this 1-hour webcast, members of the KPMG Trade & Customs team, Jessica Libby, Elizabeth Shingler and Pierfilippo Natta, will discuss actions importers can take today to limit exposure as well as steps to take to compliantly import products in the future. Topics include:
- The UFLPA’s requirements and the recent Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) and Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force (“FLETF”) guidance;
- Identifying and quantifying potential risk;
- Creating an anti-forced labor program; and
- Implementing and monitoring remediation.
