Background

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske has directed the issuance of an order that will require detention at all U.S. ports of entry of any imported soda ash, calcium chloride, caustic soda or viscose/rayon fiber manufactured or mined by Tangshan Sanyou Group and its subsidiaries in China. This order is based on information obtained by CBP indicating that the these companies utilize convict labor in the production of these goods. Under U.S. law it is illegal to import goods made, wholly or in part, with convict labor and/or forced labor (including forced child labor) and/or indentured labor under penal sanctions.
