amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI)

The amfori Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) is an industry-driven movement that aims to monitor and assess workplace standards across the global supply chain. There is growing expectation that companies not only ensure their own businesses are responsible, but that their suppliers are also demonstrating social responsibility. 

Benefits of conducting an amfori BSCI audit

  • Ensure workers throughout your supply chain are being treated ethically and their rights respected
  • Avoid negative press if it is found your suppliers are treating workers poorly
  • Enhance your reputation among consumers as a reputable and ethical company and develop a competitive edge
  • Improve your relationship with suppliers

  2. Request an audit with participant authorisation via the online amfori BSCI platform
  3. Fill in a self-assessment tool, as well as an audit application to obtain a customised quote
  4. Undergo a semi-announced or unannounced audit visit
  5. Receive a corrective action plan, followed by corrective phase to improve compliance
