ABSTRACT

2010 U.S. Department of Labor's List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor: Report Required by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Acts of 2005 and 2008   [open pdf - 5MB]

"This publication presents an update to the List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor (the List) which was first published on September 10, 2009 by the Bureau of international Labor Affairs (iLAB) of the U.S. Department of Labor, pursuant to the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2005.1 The TVPRA mandated that iLAB develop and publish a list of goods from countries that iLAB 'has reason to believe are produced by forced labor or child labor in violation of international standards.' The primary purposes of the List are to raise public awareness about the incidence of child labor and forced labor in the production of goods in the countries listed and to promote efforts to eliminate such practices. Pursuant to this mandate, iLAB conducted an in-depth review of available information on the use of such exploitative labor in the production of goods. In evaluating the information, multiple criteria were used to determine whether a good should be placed on the List, including the nature of the information, source of the information, date of the information, extent of corroboration, and significant incidence. […] An examination of 116 countries identified 128 goods from 70 countries that iLAB believes are produced with child labor or forced labor. The 2010 update adds 6 new goods and 12 new countries since the list was published in 2009."
