Public Submissions for Child Labor & Forced Labor Reporting

The Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor, & Human Trafficking (OCFT) receives submissions of information on child labor and forced labor from a broad range of constituents, including foreign governments, businesses and industry associations, and civil society organizations. Some of these are sent in response to specific requests for information, such as OCFT's annual Federal Register Notice requesting information for the Trade and Development Act (TDA) report, the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) List and the Executive Order 13126 (EO) List.  Some fall under the public comment and submission processes described in OCFT's Procedural Guidelines for the TVPRA and EO Lists. OCFT welcomes any relevant information on an ad-hoc and ongoing basis.

In addition, ILAB's Office of Trade and Labor Affairs accepts public submissions related to labor issues under U.S. free trade agreements.  If interested in this type of submission, please visit our Submissions under the Labor Provisions of Free Trade Agreements page
