With the May 2023 service pack, the UFLPA Entity List has been added to AEB's portfolio of restricted party lists. In case this list is relevant for your company and you wish to include it into your AEB Compliance Screening software, you can license the UFLPA Entity List in addition to your already existing content.
What is the meaning of this restricted party list?
The UFLPA Entity List has been created based on the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (also known as the UFLPA). The UFLPA was enacted on December 23, 2021, and became effective on June 21, 2022.
The UFLPA prohibits the importation of goods, wares, articles and merchandise manufactured wholly or in part in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang) in the People's Republic of China or in an enterprise listed on the UFLPA Entity List into the United States. The UFLPA presumes that all goods and commodities produced in Xinjiang or by a company named on the UFLPA Entity List were produced with forced labor. Importation of these goods into the U.S. is generally prohibited.
The UFLPA Entity List consists of the following four sections:
- section 2(d)(2)(B)(i) - A list of entities in Xinjiang that mine, produce, or manufacture wholly or in part any goods, wares, articles and merchandise with forced labor.
- Section 2(d)(2)(B)(ii) - A list of entities working with the government of Xinjiang to recruit, transport, transfer, harbor or receive forced labour or Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, or members of other persecuted groups out of Xinjiang.
- Section 2(d)(2)(B)(iv) - A list of entities that have exported products manufactured by entities listed in Section 1 and 2 from the People's Republic of China into the United States.
- Section 2(d)(2)(B)(v) - A list of facilities and entities, including the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, that source material from Xinjiang or from persons working with the government of Xinjiang or the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps
The issuer of the UFLPA Entity List is the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. For further information on exceptions, due diligence requirements, effective supply chain management etc., please visit the authority’s website.
Which companies need to screen against the UFLPA Entity List?
Screening against the UFLPA Entity List is relevant for companies exporting their goods into the United States.
Do you need to license this list if you use third-party content in Compliance Screening?
If you screen your business partners against restricted party list content from third parties (such as Reguvis or Dow Jones) in your AEB Compliance Screening application, the UFLPA Entity List may already be included in your content. In that case you do not need to license this list separately/additionally. For more information, please contact your content provider directly.
