Prohibition of Acquisition of Products Produced by Forced or Indentured Child Labor (FAC 97-23, FAR Case 1999-608)

This final rule amends the FAR by adding a new FAR subpart on prohibition of acquisition of products produced by forced or indentured child labor (Subpart 22.15), adding a new certification regarding knowledge of child labor for listed end products (FAR 52.212-3 and 52.222-18), and adding a clause at 52.222-19, which requires cooperation with authorities if the solicitation included the certification provision and provides remedies for violations relating to use of forced or indentured child labor.
