[Excerpt] On September 10, 2009 the Department of Labor released an initial determination proposing to update the EO 13126 list in accordance with the "Procedural Guidelines for the Maintenance of the List of Products Requiring Federal Contractor Certification as to Forced or Indentured Child Labor." The initial determination sets forth an updated list of products, by country of origin, which the Departments of Labor, State and Homeland Security, preliminarily believe might have been mined, produced, or manufactured by forced or indentured child labor. The initial determination contains a list of 21 countries and 29 products. On September 11, DOL will publish a notice in the Federal Register officially requesting public comment on its initial determination for a period of 90 days. DOL will consider all public comments prior to publishing a final determination updating the list of products, made in consultation and cooperation with the Departments of State and Homeland Security. Until publication of the final determination, the current January 18, 2001 list remains valid.
