Enforcement of the prohibition of importation of goods mined, produced or manufactured by forced labor is on the rise. This page gathers together information and resources on preventing forced labor in your supply chain and moving toward supply chain transparency "from earth to hearth." 

ST&R Forced Labor Approach

Importers should be taking affirmative steps to ensure compliance and manage risk. Our firm has developed the ST&R approach to address the focus on forced labor:

  • Stocktaking of your existing corporate social responsibility programs and augmenting them with forced labor specific updates;
  • Testing and Tracing your company and suppliers’ ability to respond to documentation requests and ensure the measures put in place are sufficient; and
  • Responding, if necessary, to any potential CBP detention that may be issued.
