Merchandise Produced by Convict, Forced, or Indentured Labor; Conforming Amendment and Technical Corrections

This document amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations to reflect section 910 of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 by removing the ‘‘consumptive demand’’ clause from the regulations concerning the prohibition on the importation of merchandise produced by convict, forced, or indentured labor. It also updates the regulations to reflect the correct name of the agency and includes a minor procedural change with regard to the filing of proof of admissibility.
