human rights note-blog

From last week's webinar on Canada's new S-211 Act against forced and child labor in supply chains, to our hybrid event for both members and non-members on the U.S. Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), we're bringing in subject matter experts to explore key human rights legislation and its impact on industry. 

Find out more below and be sure to register ASAP to secure your spot(s). 

Hybrid UFLPA Trade Policy: A Legal Perspective on Compliance: Now scheduled for April 17, 2024, this hybrid event is open to AIAG members (in person or virtually) and non-members (virtually only). Join us to ask questions and hear key insights on UPLPA federal enforcement and policy by Washington, D.C.-based international trade law attorney Michael P. House.  

As partner and firm-wide co-chair at Perkins Coie, Michael will provide an experienced legal perspective on the latest developments in UFLPA enforcement, including case studies, best practices, key litigation affecting CBP activities, and recent policy developments. He will also share critical insights to help reduce your risk of receiving a Notice of Detention, along with lessons learned from companies who have had shipments stopped by CBP and insights on how to respond. 
Since the UFLPA passed with strong bipartisan support and is not anticipated to change, this critical event will help inform and better prepare your team for compliance. Register today to learn more!
*Note: In person members are also invited to join us for a networking cocktail reception following Michael's presentation to ask additional questions and continue the discussion. Not a member yet? Learn more  

"Supply Chain Transparency Reporting Comes to Canada" Webinar Recording: Originally held on February 28, this complimentary webinar recording features Gowling WLG's Stephen Pike discussing Canada's S-211 - Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act.

Since S-211 not only applies to Canadian businesses, Stephen addresses key points including which businesses need to report, what needs to be included in these reports, board approval and attestation of reports, and the new mandatory questionnaire, along with enforcement, offences, and penalties under S-211, and questions such as, "Is S-211 connected to the prohibition on the importation into Canada of goods mined, manufactured, or produced, wholly or in part, by forced and/or child labor?"
