On March 14, 2023, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) launched an interactive web page providing forced labor enforcement statistics under the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA). CBP launched this “UFLPA statistics dashboard” to provide a single source of data on UFLPA enforcement actions. The dashboard provides information on the number of total shipments, shipments denied access, shipments released by CBP, and also allows users to select specific views for greater details of shipments by industry and by country of origin. The dashboard includes only data related to enforcement of the UFLPA and not other forced labor enforcement by CBP, such as withhold release orders (WROs) or findings.
The start date of the data in this dashboard is June 21, 2022, the date on which CBP began UFLPA implementation. As of March 3, 2023, the dashboard indicates that 3,237 shipments, valued at $961 million, were subject by CBP to UFLPA reviews or enforcement actions. CBP denied (i.e., seized, excluded, exported or destroyed) a total of 424 shipments and released 1,090 shipments into the United States. The remaining shipments are pending a determination. To date, the bulk of shipments being examined fall into the electronics industry sector, followed by the apparel, footwear and textiles industry sector. Malaysia, Vietnam and China are the top three countries of origin, by shipment value, for shipments subject to UFLPA enforcement actions.
CBP has also prepared a helpful UFLPA Data Dictionary guide to assist in using and interpreting the dashboard.
