Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) Compliance Management
Multi-tier supplier visibility and monitoring to detect and mitigate forced labor risk
UFLPA requires companies to ensure that their products entering the United States are not associated with forced labor in the Xinjiang region of China. Currently, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is targeting product shipments across four high-risk areas: apparel, cotton, polysilicon, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), tomatoes, and aluminum. This is likely to expand to include lithium-ion batteries and other metals in the near future.
To avoid violations, companies must conduct due diligence and expand visibility into their multi-tier supply chains and be prepared to address any issues found. This is where a combination of multi-tier mapping down to the part-site level and supplier risk assessments can help give companies the visibility they need.
