Supply chain links to forced labor present a continually evolving risk from import detentions, civil and criminal penalties, adverse publicity, and hostility from stakeholders on all sides. Though daunting, these risks can be substantially managed by a thoughtfully designed (or re-designed) compliance program for sustainable sourcing. Join us for a practical discussion on how to build a sustainable sourcing compliance program that rises to the challenge of CBP’s enforcement of the U.S. forced labor import ban (Section 307 of the Tariff Act of 1930).
