Explore the implications of the UFLPA Legislation on your brand's success and adapt accordingly.
What is UFLPA
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) is a US law that bans the import of goods made with forced labor from China's Xinjiang Region. It addresses human rights concerns, alleging forced labor and abuses in the region. If passed, companies would need to certify their products are free from Xinjiang forced labor or face penalties.
Who does it apply to?
The UFLPA apply to all companies producing or selling goods in or to the United States that are made in Xinjiang, China or contain materials sourced from the region. It prevents goods made with forced labor in Xinjiang from entering the US market, regardless of the sector or product type. Industries like apparel, electronics, and agriculture, considered high-risk for forced labor, may face increased scrutiny if the UFLPA becomes law.
How to address it?
Companies must conduct due diligence and disclose supply chain information to prevent importing forced labor products.
The Uyghur Fair Labor Protection Act was passed in December 2021.
