AAFA Member-Only Webinar Briefing on UFLPA Enforcement

Wednesday, June 29, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Online, Via Zoom


Member only. Participation on AAFA Committee Calls is limited to AAFA members only. To join AAFA or to be added to a committee, contact membership@aafaglobal.org.


On June 21, the rebuttable presumption under the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevent Act (UFLPA) took effect. That means U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) now presumes that any U.S. import shipment that has any nexus with Xinjiang, or with Uyghurs trafficked to other parts of China, is made with forced labor and will detain subject shipments. What does this mean for your company? What do the details say about what to document and how to prove a negative? Join AAFA for this member-only briefing where we will walk through what we know, what we don’t know, and our learnings from the existing withhold release order (WRO) on cotton from Xinjiang.
