Top Glove reiterates commitment to work closely with US CBP to resolve WRO, finding

KUALA LUMPUR: Top Glove Corporation Bhd has reiterated its commitment to working closely with the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to resolve the withhold release order (WRO) and the forced labour finding against it.

The glove maker said this in a statement following the agency’s seizure of its Kansas City-bound shipment of 4.68 million latex gloves.

Top Glove said it had provided the CBP its submission of all remediated 11 International Labour Organisation’s forced labour indicators, as verified by Impactt Ltd, an independent international consultant in the United Kingdom, in its report dated April 22, 2021.

According to a CBP statement released on Wednesday (May 12), its officers assigned to the Port of Kansas City in Missouri seized the latex gloves worth an estimated US$690,000 (RM2.85 million) produced by a Top Glove subsidiary.

The seizure, the regulator said, was due to information that the gloves were allegedly made by forced labour. - Bernama
