WEBCAST

Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act

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 withhold release orders and other enforcement actions. The recent enactment of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) and the proposed New York Fashion Act has set out a set of supply chain due diligence requirements that are expected in responsible supply chains.

Many importers are closely examining their supply chains to assess potential vulnerabilities and actions required to address the new requirements. While this is a developing area for most companies, there are practical steps that can be taken to understand your readiness for the UFLPA June implementation, while also proactively addressing gaps within your supply chain.

In this 1-hour webcast, leaders from the KPMG Trade & Customs team will discuss on a number of important topics that will help companies assess their risks and develop a compliance plan.

Topics to include:

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

 

Note: There will be no CPE offered for this session
