Given the recent issuance of a WRO (Withhold Release Order) by CBP on all merchandise containing cotton or cotton products from Xinjiang, and the impact this will have, we have invited Rick Horwitch and Chuck Rogers of Bureau Veritas and Nicole Bivens Collinson of Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg to talk about what it means, what are the implications and what do importers and all supply chain players need to do to prepare. 

Rick Horwitch comments, "There are other companies (retailers and brands) that are launching 'traceability' technologies.  There are companies outside of the apparel/footwear/textile industry doing this, as well. The challenge going forward is how well do you know your supply chain, and your supply chain’s supply chain". An article on VF's program states, "Our Sustainability team currently reports full supply chain mapping for about 140 of our products.  We have an objective to report mapping for all products which is a formidable task". The US gov’t (along with Canada and EU) are (or will be) demanding traceability beyond Tier 1.  Most important, the consumer (especially Millennial’s and Gen Z) is starting to demand transparency and traceability. 

We will show what this means and what you can do to meet these new demands.
