According to the press release, “The UFLPA prohibits goods from being imported into the United States that are either produced in China’s Xinjiang region or by certain entities identified in the UFLPA Strategy, unless the importer can prove by clear and convincing evidence that the goods were not produced with forced labor.” UFLPA became effective on June 21, 2022.
