An arcane provision in U.S. Customs law, known as the "consumptive demand exception," allowed products and commodities made with forced labor to be imported in cases where production in the U.S. did not meet meet "consumptive demand." Recent changes in the statute have brought an end to this provision. What does this mean for your supply chain?
Please join us for a meetings on March 22nd in Washington, DC and May 10th, in New York, with Kenneth Kennedy, Senior Policy Advisor for Forced Labor Programs at the Department of Homeland Security/Immigration and Customs Enforcement (DHS/ICE) for a discussion about the repeal of the consumptive demand exemption, what the investigations process at CBP and ICE may look like, and what steps companies should take to increase supply chain transparency and traceability.
This event will be held on March 22, 2016 in Washington, DC and again on May 10, 2016 in New York
