US: “KNOWN IMPORTER LETTERS” TO PREVIOUS IMPORTERS OF GOODS SUBJECT TO UYGHUR FORCED LABOR PREVENTION ACT

On 15 April, Crowell Moring reported that US Customs & Border Protection has announced that it will be issuing known importer letters to importers the agency has identified as having previously imported merchandise that may be subject to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).  The aim is said to be to encourage notified importers to address any forced labour issues in their supply chains in a timely manner.  From 21 June, the importation of any goods, wares, articles, and merchandise mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) of the People’s Republic of China, or produced by an entity on a list will be prohibited from entry into the US.
