Specifications and Artwork
Amway maintains specifications for all purchased and inventoried raw materials and finished goods. Approved suppliers for an item are noted on its specification.
During development, Amway R&D works with the supplier to develop specifications that capture and specify critical requirements of an item and reflect supplier capability to meet those requirements. As new or revised specifications are issued, they are sent to approved suppliers for their review and acceptance. A form letter, explaining the supplier review and approval process, is sent to the supplier along with the specification. Please review Amway’s Specification Development Process for futher details. Suppliers for the Durables business line may need to reference the Engineering Change Form and the Engineering Change Procedure.
Purchase orders issued to a supplier reference the current specification for the item being purchased. It is important that the supplier call their Amway Procurement contact as soon as possible if there are any issues concerning the referenced specification.
