Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA)

The UFLPA detains any cotton, tomato, and electronic products coming from the Xinjiang Uyghur Region of China into the US where there are reports of forced labor. Is your supply at risk?

What you need to know about the UFLPA

  • The UFLPA affects any business importing goods into the US. High-risk products include cotton, tomatoes, and polysilicon (found in solar panels and batteries).  
  • Goods suspected of originating in or being even partially produced in Xinjiang or by Uyghur labor can be detained at the border. Companies have 30-60 days to show verifiable proof of provenance before goods are discarded and the company is fined.
