The Trade Facilitation & Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 eliminated the “consumptive demand” clause, and U.S. Customs has already taken quick action to detain products suspected to be produced by forced labor. Right away, U.S. Customs has seized products, including some textile products. Frances Hadfield, counsel in Crowell & Moring's International Trade Group in New York City, discusses the new law and how it will impact brands and retailers. She is joined by David Wolff, counsel in the firm's Washington office and consultant with C&M International, the firm's trade policy affiliate, who discusses DPRK sanctions and recent reports that North Koreans are working for Chinese manufacturers just over the China-DPRK border.
