Kharon's Forced Labor Data + Technology Offerings
June 28, 2022
In this In Focus, Kharon's experts walk you through our expansive Forced Labor data and technology offerings.
The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA) and other forced labor regulations significantly expand compliance requirements for industry to ensure that goods made with forced labor in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China do not enter the United States. Furthermore, the U.S. government presumes that all items made in Xinjiang were produced using forced labor, with the burden of proof resting on importers to demonstrate that materials, parts, or goods "originating in China were not mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part" in Xinjiang.
Kharon's Forced Labor data solutions make navigating this complicated landscape less challenging by helping you screen for forced labor indicators and typologies as outlined in government regulations and guidance. With unmatched coverage of thousands of individuals, companies, and state-owned or affiliated enterprises presenting forced labor and human rights risk exposure, Kharon's Forced Labor data enables you to quickly detect and mitigate material exposure that can otherwise remain hidden — allowing your enterprise to avoid regulatory, enforcement, and reputational risks.
Kharon’s Forced Labor data includes:
- Companies and supply chains targeted by the UFLPA Entity List
- Raw materials manufactured in whole or in part in Xinjiang
- Apparel and textile manufacturers and facilitators connected to Xinjiang
- Polysilicon and green energy companies (e.g. battery, solar, etc.) connected to Xinjiang
