The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act will come into force in the US on June, 21, 2022. On this episode, John Foote, a partner and the head of the customs practice at Kelley Drye & Warren, discusses the ins and out of what it will mean for companies importing to the US.

We also get into:

  • The legal history of preventing goods produced by forced labor from being imported to the US.
  • How companies could run into supply chain issues if any of their raw materials for goods come from Xinjiang.
  •  What it means for Chinese entities.
  • The difficult appeals process for disputing customs seizures.
