CBP Communication: Combatting Forced Labor in the Supply Chains
It is up to all of us to eliminate the practice of forced labor. But the U.S. Government cannot address the presence of forced labor practices in the supply chain by itself.  First, because U.S. legislation alone will not ensure overall global compliance.  And second, governments need to work with the owners of the supply chain in order to be able to have a serious impact in eradicating it.  This is why CBP developed a holistic approach, one where the U.S. partners with foreign governments, partner government agencies, industry and civil society to enhance and improve information collection, prevention, enforcement, and remediation.  And the enforcement of national and international obligations should be aligned with pre-existing government-endorsed initiatives like the World Customs Organization’s Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) program. (Forced Labor Document) (U.S. Tariff Act to Combat Forced Labor in Supply Chains)
