Earlier this year, in late March, CBP issued a finding that certain disposable gloves, were mined, produced, or manufactured in Malaysia by Top Glove Corporation Bhd with the use of convict, forced, or indentured labor, and were being, or were likely to be, imported into the United States.  Pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1307 and CFR 12.42 (g), it is hereby determined that the articles described below are no longer being mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part with the use of convict, forced, or indentured labor by Top Glove in Malaysia.  

The change is the result of the cooperation of Top Glove Corporate to address issues initially cited.

The Federal Register dated September 10, 2021, proposed to amend the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations to require continuing education for individual customs broker license holders (individual brokers) and to create a framework for administering this requirement. By requiring individual brokers to remain knowledgeable about recent developments in customs and related laws as well as international trade and supply chains, CBP's proposed framework would enhance professionalism and competency within the customs broker community. CBP has determined that the proposed framework would contribute to increase trade compliance and better protection of the revenue of the United States.

Comments on this change are being accepted on or before November 9, 2021.
