amfori BSCI System Manual Public Consultation

As part of its revision cycle, the amfori team has been revising the amfori BSCI System Manual tools and guidelines together with members, key stakeholders and business partners since 2021.

In this update, we are:

  • Emphasising the responsability of companies to undertake due diligence
  • Emphasising amfori's role as an enabler and service provider
  • Making structural revisions to the Systems Manual to closer align content to the OECD due diligence steps
  • Claryfying on key concepts (e.g. prioritisation, risk assessment, continuous improvement)
  • Refining all questions, with special attention to crucial questions to align with updated amfori BSCI Code of Conduct and improve assessments of key risk areas
  • Reviewing all the content with a gender-lens and emphasising the protection of vulnerable persons
  • Aligning the concepts and process of the amfori BSCI Monitoring with amfori Sustainability Platform
  • Introducing a new audit methodology for agricultural production of food
