Practical approach to compliance to UFLPA

OTTAWA, ON, Oct. 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – On 9 November 2022, Claigan Environmental Inc. (www.claigan.com) will present a webinar on compliance to the US Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).  Under UFLPA, US Customs and Border Protection can stop and hold your products if they believe the materials originated from Xinjiang province.  To release your products from customs, you need to show due diligence that your products did not benefit from forced labour.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act is a United States federal law that changes U.S. policy on China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region with the goal of ensuring that American entities are not funding forced labor among ethnic minorities in the region.

Claigan’s approach to due diligence is proactive and follows the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Operational Guidance for Importers.  Claigan’s process is a step wise approach to assessing the risk of each supplier and related due diligence requirements.  From that risk assessment and due diligence, Claigan produces an evidence package for each supplier that can be provided to US Customs and Border Protection, or as reference to inquiring customers.

As part of Claigan’s webinar, Claigan will discuss the numerous gold refineries, identified during the conflict minerals due diligence work, that source from the Xinjiang province by reviewing publicly available evidence.

The main topics to be covered in this webinar are –

  • Basics of UFLPA
  • Evidence and due diligence requirements
  • Supplier risk levels
  • High risk materials
  • High risk and listed entities
  • Gold refineries sourcing from the Xinjiang region

Due to the interest in these topics, two (2) webinars will be held on November 9 to accommodate a larger audience.
