The migration of amfori members from the amfori BSCI Platform to the amfori Sustainability Platform continues to take place over the second half of 2020 and early 2021.

A segment is a group of members that:

- falls under the same classification (as declared by a company in the application form submitted for joining amfori), these are usually divided by industry.

- is migrated on the same date

To date, nine segments of amfori members have been migrated. 

Segments are sequenced so as to migrate a member only when all features currently used by this member are available and fully functioning in the new platform. This means that the sequence of segments is carefully planned to meet the business needs of members.

Based on the type of services that member companies are using, the estimated time window for migration are available below:

Segment Date of migration Segment Estimated date of migration
Cosmetics June 2020 Furniture November 2020
Toys July 2020 Household Goods (1) December 2020
Electronics August 2020 Household Goods (2) December 2020
Shoes August 2020 Members with branches January 2021
Paper Goods September 2020 Sporting Goods January 2021
Accessories (1) September 2020 Garments & Textiles February 2021
Accessories (2) October 2020 SA8000 February 2021
DIY (1) October 2020 General Merchandising (1) February 2021
DIY (2) November 2020 General Merchandising (2) March 2021
    Home Textiles March 2021
    Food & Beverages March 2021

 

*Adaptations of the segments are possible during the process of migration and will be reflected in the communication of members.

Separate timelines are agreed on a one-to-one basis with members which require a system-to-system interface.

How do I know the exact date when my company will be migrated? amfori notifies members of a segment four weeks prior to migration. Over the four week period, each member receives three notifications with guidelines on how to prepare for migration and with the exact timeline.

Why are all members not migrated at the same time? Conducting a one-off migration entails a high risk of failure and errors that could bring the business of members to a standstill. Therefore, the strategy has been chosen to implement migration in waves.
