In a Westlaw Today article, attorneys discussed new forced labor compliance requirements for participants in the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism's Security and Trade Compliance programs.

This voluntary supply chain security program is led by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Originally, known as CTPAT Security, the program functioned as a voluntary collaboration between CBP and supply chain stakeholders — including importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed custom brokers and manufacturers — to promote U.S. border security and combat terrorism.

The article was authored by Michael Littenberg, partner and global chair on the firm’s environmental, social and governance, corporate social responsibility and business and human rights compliance practice, ESG, CSR and business and human rights associate Samantha Elliott and corporate associate Adwoa Hinson.
