WASHINGTON DC - Customs officials in the US have reportedly confirmed that isotopic testing found that more than a quarter of the garment and footwear imports which they checked were linked to China’s Xinjiang region.

US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) checks apparel imports to ensure they comply with the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act (UFLPA) which bans imports of goods from Xinjiang on the presumption they were made with forced labour unless it can be proved otherwise.

CBP data has now revealed that 27% of isotopic tests performed on garments and footwear during May this year showed links to cotton from Xinjiang, according to documents obtained by the Reuters news agency under the Freedom of Information Act.
