    China Redux: What Could Be Lurking in the Supply Chain? | EMBARGOED! Episode 56

    In this episode, Tim is joined by Kate Yin (Fangda Partners) and Miller & Chevalier's Richard Mojica and Virginia Newman to discuss due diligence and other issues arising from the newly implemented Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act. The group walks through the basics of the UFLPA, the challenges it creates for U.S. importers, the industries it targets for enforcement, and the rebuttable presumption for items traced to Xinjiang province.  The group then turns to identify concrete steps companies are taking to comply with the UFLPA, including how companies are conducting necessary due diligence while at the same time navigating challenges posed by Chinese Anti-Foreign Sanctions law.

A podcast for the workday!

As a newbie export control practitioner and long time podcast enthusiast, the intersection of export control knowledge and updates in a podcast is so relevant to me! Easy to follow and enjoyable to listen. A definite work-day listening requirement.
