Next responded

Thank you for contacting Next regarding the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act. We are pleased to provide a response as follows:

  1. Is Next applying a single global standard, aligned with the legal requirements set forth in the UFLPA, to exclude Uyghur forced labour across its supply chains and to not bifurcate its supply chains?

Next: We have a Cotton Sourcing Policy which bans the use of cotton from Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and the Xinjiang region of China due to the forced labour situation in farming and at harvest.

  1. Is Next committed to not re-exporting goods detained under the auspices of the UFLPA to other markets?

Next: Our approach is to ensure that the product imported into the US meets the requirements of the UFLPA.

  1. If Next is committed to the above statements, how is it implementing these commitments?

Next: We have a partnership with Oritain who are a forensic traceability partner, with whom we have formalised a risk management due diligence testing programme.

  1. If Next is not committed to a single global standard, how is it ensuring that goods imported into markets other than the United States are not tainted?

Next: N/A - see above
