CBP’s guidance for Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) Importer guidance is available

Updated: Jul 19, 2022

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) was signed into law on December 23, 2021

UFLPA establishes a rebuttable presumption that the importation of any goods, wares, articles, and merchandise mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People’s Republic of China, or produced by certain entities on the Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force (FLETF) Entity List, is prohibited and will not be allowed entry to the United States.

CBP has released importer guidance to assist the importers in preparing for the implementation of the UFLPA rebuttable presumption that goes into effect on June 21, 2022.

Importers are encouraged to perform a complete review of their sourcing and supply chain to ensure that their importations are not subject to UFLPA.
