DHS Adds 26 Chinese Textile Companies to Forced Labor List

Those listed are prohibited from exporting goods into the U.S.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) added 26 textile companies based in China to the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) Entity List. This action will restrict the entry of goods produced by these companies into the United States, particularly those sourcing cotton from the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR). This measure is intended to increase transparency and ensure that responsible companies can verify their supply chains to avoid using goods made with forced labor.

DHS Under Secretary Robert Silvers said, “Companies must conduct due diligence and know where their products are coming from. The Forced Labor Enforcement Task Force will continue to designate entities known to violate our laws, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue its vigilant enforcement at our ports.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Under Secretary Silvers as he manages the DHS Office of Strategy, Policy, and Plans.
  • For DHS officials as they endeavor to prevent the economic support of forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
