A Costly Reminder That Importers Are Liable For The Products That They Import Into The U.S
August 19, 3030
A U.S. importer has been forced to pay $575,000 in fines regarding the import of a product manufactured with forced labor. Importers should be aware that Customs is focusing on the enforcement of applicable U.S. laws and regulations governing the import of products made with forced labor and as the importer your company would be held liable for any violations. Importers should carefully vet their suppliers and make certain that all of their suppliers are operating under the regulations regarding the use of forced labor.
