US: XINJIANG SUPPLY CHAIN BUSINESS ADVISORY – SUPPLY CHAIN RISKS RE ENTITIES ENGAGED IN FORCED LABOUR/HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES

On 1 July, OFAC issued an Advisory on risks for businesses with potential exposure in their supply chain to entities engaged in human rights abuses in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang). Businesses with potential exposure in their supply chain to Xinjiang or to facilities outside Xinjiang that use labour or goods from Xinjiang should be aware of the reputational, economic, and legal risks of involvement with entities that engage in human rights abuses, including but not limited to forced laboUr in the manufacture of goods intended for domestic and international distribution.
