U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released on their website the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region WRO Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). This is to help answer the many questions asked since the issuance of the Withhold Release Order (WRO) for cotton, cotton products, tomatoes and tomato products produced in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (XUAR).
This new FAQ site addresses:
- Proof of Admissibility
- Due Diligence/Best Practices
In the FAQ, CBP confirms that any goods not subject to the WRO will be admissible and provides for the steps to extract and enter them. If you import cotton, tomatoes or any of the downstream products, we encourage you to review the FAQ and best practices to eradicate forced labor from the supply chains.
