It can be daunting to submit forced labor allegations in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) system. To ease the pressure on filers CBP has released two useful documents—a Recommended Guidelines for Submissions of Forced Labor Supporting Documents and a Forced Labor Allegation Submission Checklist. These resources will help clarify details of what information should be submitted and how to gather supporting documentation for both allegations and requests to modify withhold release orders and forced labor findings. The more descriptive and prompt the information is, the more likely CBP can efficiently investigate the allegations.
