This week the Congressional Research Service (CRS) released an update explaining Section 307 of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. §1307), which prohibits the importation of any product that was mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part by forced labor. CRS reviews the application of Section 307 including the use of Withhold Release Orders. When looking at trends CSR noted "there has been some legislative activity on this issue in the 116th Congress. The Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act (H.R. 649 and S. 178), for example, urges U.S. companies operating in Xinjiang to, “take steps…to publicly assert…that their supply chains are not compromised by forced labor.” The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (S. 3471), includes a “rebuttable presumption” that all goods produced or manufactured in Xinjiang are made with forced labor and thus prohibited imports unless CBP determines otherwise."
