List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor [2012]   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Introduction: "The List's primary purposes are to raise public awareness about forced labor and child labor and to promote efforts to address them. The List is not intended to be punitive, but rather as a starting point for individual and collective action. Publication of the List has provided ILAB [Bureau of International Labor Affairs] new opportunities to engage in technical cooperation with foreign governments to combat child labor and forced labor and has also been a valuable resource to many companies in carrying out risk assessment and due diligence on labor rights in their supply chains. [...] This edition of the List adds four new goods and three new countries to the List. The List now includes a total of 134 goods from 74 countries. Given the current state of research on child labor and forced labor, the List - while as comprehensive as possible - includes only those goods for which ILAB is able to document that there is reason to believe that child or forced labor is used in their production. It is likely that many more goods are produced through these forms of labor abuse."
