On June 9, 2021, Baker McKenzie’s Global Supply Chain Compliance Blog published the blog “The White House Announces Key Findings from 100-Day Reviews Under ‘America’s Supply Chains’ Executive Order and Takes Actions Intended to Ensure Supply Chain Resilience.” The post examines a set of reports published by the White House following a 100-day review of four key supply chains: semiconductor manufacturing and advanced packaging; large capacity batteries, including electric vehicle batteries; critical minerals and materials; and pharmaceuticals and advanced pharmaceutical ingredients. These reports assessed risks within these supply chains and provides policy recommendations to address those risks. These reports, along with the accompanied fact sheet, outline new compliance matters, including export controls, that companies should consider. Details of these measures will be unpacked in further blog posts on the Global Supply Chain Compliance Blog, so we encourage you to subscribe to that blog to ensure that you receive the latest updates.
