amfori has decided to extend by three months the validity dates of amfori BSCI audits worldwide with an expiry date between 1 March 2020 and 1 June 2020, provided that the auditing company cannot conduct the audit in time.
Following the continuing spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), amfori has decided to extend by three months the validity dates of amfori BSCI audits worldwide with an expiry date between 1 March 2020 and 1 June 2020 if the auditing company has confirmed that an audit cannot be conducted in time. This decision does not apply to amfori BEPI assessments, where there is no RSP holder.
As a reminder, in the event that:
A full amfori BSCI audit is approaching its expiry date and a follow up audit needs to be requested, or
An audit cycle is approaching its expiry date,
Steps to be taken by the RSP holder to ensure an extension:
Contact the auditing company to confirm whether the audit can be scheduled or not. If the auditing company confirms the audit cannot be conducted, and the audit comes to expiration, the audit expiry date can be extended by three months. The extension will not be visible on the amfori BSCI platform but will be mentioned in the audit report.
In order to keep the RSP, the member can therefore request an audit for a future date. It is highly recommended to contact the producer and auditing company for more information and agree on the future time windows. You can make use of the field “instructions for auditor” under the Auditor Information section in the audit request screen to further communicate with the auditing company
