Six Months Inactivity Rule (6MIR)

The Amway Rules of Conduct are established to uphold essential standards of behaviour to support and preserve the benefits of the Amway Sales & Marketing Plan equitably for all AMWAY Business Owners (ABOs).


SIX MONTHS INACTIVITY RULE

Integrity of the Line of Sponsorship is an integral part of the Amway Sales & Marketing Plan. The Six Months Inactivity Rule serves to protect your Line of Sponsorship and to ensure ABOs are able to build a strong and stable Amway business. As such, Amway will strictly enforce this rule.

The period of Six Months Inactivity Rule commences from the months after the expiry month or the date the ABO resigns from the ABOship, whichever is earlier. Amway defines resignation date as the date of receipt of the resignation.

The onus of compliance lies with the former ABO concerned. It is also the responsibility of the Sponsor from the new Line of Sponsorship to verify that the Six Months Inactivity Rule has been duly complied with before the former ABO signs the SA88 Application Form. If a violation to the Six Months Inactivity Rule has been duly proven, corrective action such as group and PV/BV transfer back to the original Line of Sponsorship shall be taken against the ABO concerned.

 

Example 1: Lapse
ABO A did not submit his/her Intent to Continue cum amagram™ Subscription (ITCCAS) after the expiry of his/her ABOship in March 2010. Thus, the Six Months Inactivity Rule period commences from 01 April 2010 and ends on 30 September 2010. ABO A may sign up AFTER 30 September 2010, i.e. from 01 October 2010 onwards.

Example 2: Resignation
Amway received ABO B’s resignation on 12 December 2009 even though the expiry of his/her ABOship is only due in March 2010. Thus, the Six Months Inactivity Rule period commences from 12 December 2009 and ends on 11 June 2010. ABO B may sign up AFTER 11 June 2010, i.e. from 12 June 2010 onwards.
