US: FORCED LABOUR RISK MANAGEMENT PRINCIPLES RECOMMENDED FOR IMPORTERS

Sandler Travis Rosenberg on 28 August reported that US Customs and Border Protection has posted to its website a list of recommended business practices to address the risk of forced labour in global supply chains.  CBP encourages stakeholders to closely examine their supply chains to ensure that imported goods are not mined, produced, or manufactured, wholly or in part, with prohibited forms of labour; i.e., slave, convict, forced child, or indentured labor.  To that end, the agency has recommended the Department of Labor’s Comply Chain principles for creating a social compliance system as a best business practice.
