The two-day expo offered a global platform for industry to share best practices on the latest technologies in supply chain transparency from around the world.
CBP launched the UFLPA statistics dashboard to provide a single source of data on UFLPA enforcement actions.
US Customs and Border Protection recently organised the Forced Labour Technical Expo and launched a dashboard focused on forced labour enforcement statistics under the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act. The event showcased the latest innovations in supply chain technology to help improve trade transparency and compliance with trade laws.
The dashboard, hosted on CBP.gov, is a highly interactive tool allowing users to select specific views for greater details of shipments stopped by CBP under UFLPA.
The dashboard answers a call for greater transparency on UFLPA enforcement while protecting sensitive trade information.
“We know that the vast majority of industry is working earnestly to comply with the UFLPA and that many have been working over the past few years to eliminate forced labor from their supply chains, even before the UFLPA rebuttable presumption went into effect,” said CBP’s acting commissioner Troy Miller in a press release.
The expo features 19 industry presentations from Sweden, Germany, Canada and the United States for over 400 participants from industry, civil society, partner government agencies and foreign governments.
