U. S. Customs and Border Protection issued orders on Monday, September 14, 2020, that will block certain imports from the Xinjiang region of China from entering the US due to allegations of forced labor involved in their production.
The bans will block goods such as cotton, computer parts, hair products, and apparel made by certain Chinese products in Xinjiang suspected of using forced labor.
The order also bans all products produced in the Lop County No. 4 Vocational Skills Education and Training Center.
The specific products banned are as follows: Hair products made in the Lop County Hair Product Industrial Park, apparel produced by Yili Zhouwan Garment Manufacturing Co Ltd, and Baoding LYSZD Trade and Business Co, LTD, cotton produced by Xinjiang Junggar Cotton and Linen Co and computer parts produced by Hefei Bitland Information Technology Co.
While the order does not initiate a region-wide ban on goods, a regional withhold release order is still being considered.
