European and American customers forced to put forward a “ban on Xinjiang cotton orders”, large quantities of cotton goods were detained by the United States customs
On March 24th, the news of H&M’s boycott of cotton from Xinjiang suddenly broke!
H&M said it does not work with any garment manufacturing factories in Xinjiang.Uniqlo, Nike, Adidas, Gap, New Balance, Zara, and Under Armour all issued boycotts of Xinjiang cotton, which aroused the anger of Chinese netizens and led to the removal of their products from many e-commerce platforms.
On the “Xinjiang cotton” incident, many foreign trade and cross-border e-commerce friends in the clear!As early as last year, many European and American customers have already stressed “no Xinjiang cotton”.
In December 2020, the US government issued a ban on cotton and tomato products from Xinjiang, citing “forced labor”.(Britain and Canada also said they would take action against Chinese products related to “forced labor.”)
That was followed by a directive from CBP, the US Customs and Border Protection, banning imports of all cotton products from China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.The order applies to all cotton grown in the area and to all products made using all or part of that cotton.Since about 85 percent of Chinese cotton is grown in the region, any finished imports from China containing cotton could be detained, and the release of the detained goods would require proof that the goods do not contain cotton from the region.
Shipment and foreign trade business, it is necessary to provide the certificate of origin, self assurance export products do not contain the xinjiang cotton, cotton, the original purchase orders and invoices, cotton, silk cotton purchase orders and invoices, purchase orders and invoices, and so on traceability data, from cotton to yarn contract, purchase order, payment certificate, basic refused to use the domestic cotton.
By January, CBP, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, had detained 43 shipments worth more than $2 million containing products from Xinjiang.Trump has also extended the ban throughout the supply chain, meaning that not only goods coming into the United States cannot contain goods made in Xinjiang, but companies entering the United States upstream and downstream and in other markets where they sell
According to the requirements of the US Customs and Border, all the goods, boxes and products sent to the US through all channels must be labeled “MADE IN CHINA”, otherwise the local imports are not allowed!The United States strictly checks the certificate of origin. For textile enterprises exporting, it not only increases the tariff, but also may face the risk of return, confiscation of goods or fines.
To this end, the freight forwarding company repeatedly stressed: “please be sure to ensure that your products do not contain cotton;If yes, please let us know as soon as possible;No, please ignore, thank you!”
This “Xinjiang cotton” incident, the most hit is the garment foreign trade company.
