Learn Best Practices to Eliminate Importations of Goods Made with Child Labor

Heightened publicity and public concern over imported products made with forced labor or child labor have led to a tightening of customs enforcement against such imports. Detention, even seizure of such nonconforming items cast importers in a bad light not only with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), but the general public and can be hazardous to your products’ public image.

Join this session with expert speaker Robin W Grover, who will address primarily U.S. restrictions on the import of foreign goods made with child labor or forced labor into the United States. Robin will discuss the recent tightening of customs standards for such items, the range of potential penalties for violators, and the best practices you should consider adopting to eliminate problems associated with such unknown importations. Robin will provide you detailed information not only on the scope of the problem, but how it is addressed by customs and other U.S. enforcement agencies. You will learn about the policies and best practices you should consider to avoid such importations and to mitigate any circumstances in which they occur.

In this session, Robin will provide not only the background on the issues created by forced or child labor imports but also remedies on how to address them. He will work through applicable regulations, penalties and cases involving products made with child or forced labor that are deemed in violation of U.S. import laws and regulations.

By attending this session you will learn the major threats to your company associated with child or forced labor and how to eliminate or mitigate the possibility of these happening. You will also learn to identify areas of concern in your company and/or in your job that can be addressed so that they do not pose a realistic area of concern for potential corporate liability nor do they pose a significant threat to your job in the event of a noncomplying importation.
