Experts raise concern about implementation of US law on Uyghur forced labor

But Douglas Barry, vice president of communications and publications for the US-China Business Council, said the law is unclear about how companies can definitively prove that no forced labor was involved in the goods they import from China. Several Chinese companies are already on the US government’s Entity List, which forbids American firms from doing business with them unless they obtain special licenses, Barry said. Beyond that, the UFLPA places the onus on the US firms to provide evidence that no forced labor was involved in the production of imported goods.
