U.S. Import Forced Labor Enforcement and the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act Description Please join our webinar with the latest update on U.S. Forced Labor enforcement initiatives including the new Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).

Beyond the actions being taken under existing statutory language, we will also discuss the key aspects of the newest U.S. legislation on forced labor, the UFLPA, which will be implemented in June 2022.

Our goal with this webinar is to provide the most current information related to the forced labor enforcement initiative. The webinar will focus on the following areas:

• Overview of forced labor
