IWPA – APKS webinar on Young Living Lacey Act Settlement

The International Wood Products Association (IWPA) and Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer (APKS) have scheduled a webinar to discuss recent Lacey Act enforcement actions that affect the U.S. wood importing industry.

The webinar, which will take place at 8pm (London Time) on Wednesday 10th January, will focus on the recent guilty plea of Young Living Essential Oils, L.C., for importing into the United States rosewood oil and spikenard oil in violation of the Lacey Act and the Endangered Species Act.

The speakers will discuss the Justice Department’s criminal charges against Young Living in the context of other recent U.S. Government enforcement actions. The lawyers will analyze the terms of Young Living’s compliance plan and compare it with the compliance plan agreed to by Lumber Liquidators in 2015, and discuss the implications of the settlement for wood industry compliance plans.
