CBP Launches Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act Webpage

Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 3/24/22 5:00 PM

On March 22, 2022, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a new webpage to provide resources and guidance on the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA). The UFLPA was signed in December 2021, and it “establishes a rebuttable presumption that the importation of any goods, wares, articles, and merchandise mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China, or produced by certain entities, is prohibited by Section 307 of the Tariff Act of 1930 and that such goods, wares, articles, and merchandise are not entitled to entry to the United States.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is seeking comments on methods to ensure these goods are not imported into the U.S. before holding a public hearing on April 8, 2022.

The UFLPA implementation begins on June 21, 2022. Questions can be directed to uflpainquiry@cbp.dhs.gov.
