Self Δ-equivalence is an equivalence relation for links, which is stronger than linkhomotopy defined by J. W. Milnor. It was shown that any boundary link is link-homotopic to a trivial link by L. Cervantes and R. A. Fenn and by D. Dimovski independently. In this paper we will show that any boundary link is self A-equivalent to a trivial link.
