An estimated 40.3 million people were living in modern slavery at any moment in time in 2016. This amounts to 5.4 victims of modern slavery for every thousand people in the world. Seventy-three percent of the victims of forced labor were female, and one in four victims were children. Forced labor accounted for 24.9 million people, while 15.4 million were in forced marriage.
 

Under section 484 of the Tariff Act, 19 U.S.C. § 1484, the importer of record is responsible for using reasonable care to enter, classify, and determine the value of imported merchandise and to provide any other information necessary to enable CBP to properly assess duties, collect accurate statistics, and determine whether other applicable legal requirements, if any, have been met.
 

CBP's amended reasonable care checklist extends an importer's responsibility to ensure it has taken reliable measures to ensure imported goods are not produced wholly or in part with convict labor, forced labor, and/or indentured labor (including forced or indentured child labor). In September 2017, CBP published an updated Reasonable Care Checklist to Include Forced Labor.

  • Background of CBP's new forced labor requirements including the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 and
  • The updated CBP Reasonable Care Checklist and how to comply with it
  • What Action CBP can take if your supplier used forced labor
  • What Tools are Available to Help Importers Meet this New Obligation?
