Over the last several years, we’ve seen major policy adoption across the globe to prevent and combat forced labor, including the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), German Supply Chain Act, Norwegian Supply Chain Transparency Act, U.K. Modern Slavery Act, Australian Modern Slavery Act, and Canada’s Forced and Child Labor in Supply Chains Act—to name a few.

While each of these laws slightly differ in their requirements and enforcement, the theme is clear: The world is moving toward a zero-tolerance policy against forced labor.

This webcast explores the implications of this trend, the industries impacted today, and predictions on the next wave of industries to be impacted. Join us as we dive into the best practices for performing due diligence across your entire supply chain—from the sourcing of raw materials to the delivery of finished goods—to become (and stay) compliant with this ever-evolving landscape.

We’ll also review the most current real-world events to understand the scope and urgency of these regulations in action: Since June 2022, the UFLPA alone has resulted in seizures of more than 7,000 shipments of goods totaling $2.6 billion, with major implications to the technology, cotton, solar, automobile, and seafood industries.

Three key elements:

  • Industry-focused compliance trends amid evolving forced labor regulations
  • Best practices and what industry leaders are doing to stay compliant, even as new regulations get added
  • Review of real-world current events and what to make of the latest headlines around forced labor investigations and violations
