Supply chain, end use, and human rights–related sanctions, export controls, and Entity List designations target public and private entities in China.
Human rights–related designations -
The US government has increasingly relied on regulatory tools to further US policy and national security objectives with respect to Chinese companies the US has determined to be involved in human rights violations and abuses. Through designations in October 2019, June 2020, and July 2020, the US Department of Commerce has added nearly 50 Chinese state-owned and commercial organizations to the Entity List for being “implicated in human rights violations and abuses in the implementation of China’s campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, forced labor and high-technology surveillance against Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR).” Designated entities include companies the US has determined to be using forced labor in the textile, apparel, and hair accessory industries as well as companies the US has determined to be supplying surveillance technology to the Chinese government.
