US IMPORT DETENTION ORDER FOR RAW PALM OIL AND PROCESSED PRODUCTS CONTAINING PALM OIL PRODUCED IN MALAYSIA BY ONE OF THE WORLD’S LARGEST PRODUCERS

In a release dated 4 January, Sandler Travis Rosenberg reported that the order requires the detention at all US ports of entry of raw palm oil and processed products containing palm oil produced in Malaysia by Sime Darby Plantation Berhad, one of the world’s largest producers, as well as its subsidiaries, joint ventures, and affiliated entities.  It is claimed that the products are tainted by International Labor Organization indicators of forced labour in this production process.  However, importers of detained shipments will have an opportunity to export their shipments or submit proof to US Customs & Border Protection that they were not produced with forced labour.
