WASHINGTON DC - Four US politicians who were behind the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act (UFLPA) have raised fears that fast fashion companies like Shein, which ship direct from China to consumers, are evading the legislation.

UFLPA, which came into effect last June, is designed to block imports from the Xinjiang region of China - the country's cotton hub - on the presumption they were made with forced labour.

Imports from Xinjiang, where more than a million Uyghur Muslims are imprisoned with many allegedly forced to work in industries including textiles, are blocked at the US border unless it can be proved they were not the result of forced labour.
