CBP stats show persistent problem areas under UFLPA

China flags

It’s been nearly two years since the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) took effect, and as enforcement statistics and recent reports demonstrate, many businesses are still not adequately vetting their supply chains.

The UFLPA, which has been enforced since June 2022, prohibits goods, including raw materials or finished products, from the Xinjiang region in northwestern China, where the forced labor of Uyghurs is endemic, from entering the United States.

Companies importing from Xinjiang or whose goods from elsewhere are suspected of being tainted by Uyghur forced labor must present detailed supply chain documentation to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials to prove the goods are clean.
