BRUSSELS - The European Commission (EC) has unveiled its proposals to ban products made with forced labour from the single market, a year after EC President Ursula von der Leyen committed to do so in her 2021 State of the Union speech.

It follows moves in the US, such as the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act (UFLPA), which bans imports from the cotton-producing Xinjiang region of China on the presumption that they are made with forced labour.

However, the EC's proposal is broader, covering all products made with forced labour - including those made in the EU for domestic consumption or export, as well as imported goods, without targeting specific companies or industries.
