As the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act entered into force recently, and key components required by the UFLPA were published, including the UFLPA enforcement strategy and the Entity List, the American Apparel & Footwear Association, National Retail Federation, Retail Industry Leaders Association and The United States Fashion Industry Association made the following statement:
“Our members have a zero tolerance for forced labor and will continue to make every effort to mitigate, root out, eliminate and prevent forced labor in their supply chains. The UFLPA is a key component of a broad global strategy and our shared goal to end forced labor.
“We look forward to an increased partnership with U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. government’s Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force as industry works to amplify the U.S. government’s efforts to eliminate forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
“This partnership is critical to make UFLPA enforcement as effective and targeted as possible.”
