The U.S Commerce Department has ordered a ban on imports from Chinese-based Hoshine Silicon Industry.

The company is a major manufacturer of industrial polysilicon used in producing most solar panels.

The ban involves forced labor allegations related to the treatment of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang—which the State Department has labeled a genocide.

The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security added Hoshine and other firms located in Xinjiang to its entity list, a trade blacklist that prevents U.S firms from doing business with the listed entities without approval from the U.S government.

The companies on the blacklist include Daqo New Energy Co., Xinjiang East Hope Nonferrous Metals Co., Xinjiang GCL New Energy Materials Technology Co., and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps.

All are involved in the manufacture or use of polysilicon products.

Beijing has dismissed accusations of genocide and forced labor in Xinjiang as lies.
