WASHINGTON DC - Issues surrounding the effective enforcement of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) in the United States have been highlighted by the latest customs data, which shows that most shipments impounded over a 12 month period were not directly from China, but from other countries in South East Asia.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) was passed to ensure that the importation of any goods produced wholly or in part in the Xinjiang Uyghur autonomous region of China is prohibited by Section 307 of the Tariff Act of 1930, and that such goods are not entitled to entry to the US.

The latest data was revealed shortly before today's announcement that the US Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force (FLETF) published an updated Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) Strategy to prevent the importation of goods mined, produced, or manufactured with forced labour in the People’s Republic of China, where four more companies have been added to the identity list.
