Overview (Program Summary)
The passage of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) is causing many multinational companies to closely audit their supply chains; however, if done improperly, the strategies and processes could conflict with newly enacted Chinese laws, such as the Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law. Please join us for a complimentary webinar on the impact of the UFLPA and the implications of the new law on companies that source from China. We will provide our perspectives from the front lines and offer guidance to meet the enhanced requirements imposed by supply chains facing increasing regulatory and public scrutiny.
- Details of the UFLPA, including its rebuttable presumption that any product with any nexus with Xinjiang or with trafficked Uyghurs is make with forced labor and thereby prohibited from import into the U.S.
- Recommendations on how companies should prepare now for the June 21, 2022, implementation of the UFLPA.
- How companies should approach compliance under the UFLPA in light of China’s Anti-Foreign Sanctions Law banning Chinese companies and individuals from complying with “discriminatory restrictive measures,” such as the UFLPA.
