ILAB in Peru
Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor
This annual report focuses on the efforts of U.S. trade beneficiary countries and territories to eliminate the worst forms of child labor through legislation, enforcement mechanisms, policies and social programs. The report presents findings on the prevalence and sectoral distribution of the worst forms of child labor in each country, country-specific suggestions for government action (since 2010), and
individual country assessments that identify where Significant, Moderate, Minimal, or No Advancement has been made (since 2011).
List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor
ILAB develops and makes public a list of goods from countries it has reason to believe are produced by child labor or forced labor in violation of international standards. The List is not intended to be punitive, but rather to raise public awareness about child labor and forced labor and to promote efforts to address them – as a starting point for individual and collective action. Publication of the List has provided ILAB new opportunities to engage
in technical cooperation with foreign governments 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. (Learn More...)
Trade Agreement & Program Reports
U.S. - Peru Trade Promotion Agreement
ILAB prepares for Congress three reports for every country with which the United States intends to establish a free trade agreement: a U.S. employment impact report, a report on the labor rights situation in our proposed partner country, and a report on laws governing exploitative child labor in the partner.
The Andean Trade Preference Act (ATPA)
ILAB submits an annual report to Congress based on a continuing review and analysis of the impact of the implementation of the Andean Trade Preference Act on U.S. labor. The law was enacted in 1991 to combat drug production and trafficking in the Andean countries: Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. The program offers trade benefits to help these countries develop and strengthen legitimate industries. It was expanded under the Trade Act of 2002 by the Andean Trade Promotion and Drug Eradication Act.
The 18th annual report is the last report in this series that includes Peru. The United States – Peru Trade Promotion Agreement made permanent some benefits similar to the ones that Peru received under the ATPA and further liberalized trade with the United States in other areas. Peru remained a designated beneficiary country of the ATPA until December 31, 2010.
