WASHINGTON DC - The US's new Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act will present brands and retailers with "incredibly challenging" hurdles to prove their products were not made with forced labour, according to risk consultants Verisk Maplecroft.

In a new briefing, Sofia Nazalya, Asia analyst at Verisk Maplecroft, describes the legislation - signed off by US President Joe Biden last month - as the most sweeping measure yet against the alleged use of forced labour in the Xinjiang region of China.

The act bans all imports into the US from Xinjiang - which supplies a fifth of the world's cotton - unless companies can prove that the products were not the product of forced labour by incarcerated Uyghur Muslims.
