In brief: Mexico cracks down on forced labour

*Mexico’s labour (STPS) and economy ministries have published a decree establishing a mechanism to limit the entry of goods produced with the total or partial use of forced or obligatory labour, including forced child labour. According to a government statement, this reinforces Mexico’s fight to eradicate forced labour from global supply chains and honours commitments made in the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) on regional trade.

The agreement will enter into force 90 calendar days from the decree’s publication.
