The aim of this rule is to protect the Amway Line of Sponsorship (‘LOS’).
If an IBO wants to change LOS, they would need to resign from their business, in writing to Amway, and wait 6 months before they can rejoin under a new LOS. You must be completely inactive. This means you cannot attend any meetings and functions, or retail any of the Amway products.
A change of LOS will not be granted to anyone who has arranged to move to another LOS before resigning from their original LOS and waiting 6 months. In these cases, Amway has the right to deny the new application.
Should any of your upline or downline wish to move LOS with you, they will need to resign, in writing to Amway, and become completely inactive from the business for a period of 2 years before signing up with your new LOS.
For further information, refer to rule 6.3 and 6.4 of the Rules of Conduct for IBOs.
