US removes Indian carpets from child labour tag

20
Jul '10
The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs today announced the publication of a final list of products that federal contractors must certify under Executive Order 13126 are not produced with forced or indentured child labor. The list will appear in the July 20 edition of the Federal Register.

In September 2009, this department released an initial determination that proposed updating the E.O. 13126 list. That determination set forth a list of 29 products in 21 countries of origin that the U.S. Departments of Labor, State and Homeland Security preliminarily believed were mined, produced or manufactured by forced or indentured child labor.

The initial determination announced a 90-day period for review and submission of public comments on these proposed updates to the list.

After careful consideration by the Departments of Labor, State and Homeland Security of all public comments received, the final determination announces final updates to the list. The only change from the initial determination is that carpets produced in India are no longer included.

The published notice explains the basis for delaying a decision on the inclusion of carpets from India, as well as provides detailed responses to the most frequently received public comments.
