Customs Compliance and Enforcement: Forced Labor

This session will provide an in-depth exploration of CBP compliance and enforcement issues in the forced labor area. CBP's focus on this critical issue continues to increase, with CBP issuing detention orders (WROs) on seafood harvested by multiple individual vessels and, recently, a WRO on seafood harvested by an entire fleet of vessels. Hear from CBP officials on what to expect in 2022, what they think is important and why. Pick up some pointers on what seafood importers should be doing to avoid having their imports suddenly stopped from entry due to forced labor concerns.
