The dangerous goods team reviews each ASIN converted to Fulfilled by Amazon if the product is identified as a possible dangerous good. These reviews help ensure that shipments meet regulatory requirements and safety standards for customers and Amazon employees.
Catalogue information is the main way that we identify a possible dangerous good. That’s why complete and accurate information must be provided when you create a listing or convert it to FBA. This includes a detailed product description, a bulleted list, and pictures, images, or both.
If the catalogue information changes, another review may be required. The product may then be reclassified, or you may be required to submit either a safety data sheet (SDS) or an exemption sheet.
Products with complete and correct dangerous goods information will be reviewed and classified within two working days (Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays). Products with incomplete, inaccurate, or conflicting information may be blocked for sale through FBA.
In either case, you may be required to upload an SDS or an exemption sheet. Exemption sheets are for batteries and battery-powered products, and for products without harmful chemicals.
Providing a complete and valid SDS when you create your FBA listing will help you to avoid delays. For more information, go to Required dangerous goods information and documentation (hazmat).
Use the Look up an ASIN tool to check the classification status of your FBA ASIN (dangerous good or non-dangerous good, or if further documentation is required from you).
Here are potential reasons for product review:
Once any documents have been uploaded, you can use the Look up an ASIN tool above to check the classification status of your FBA ASIN. If your ASIN is reclassified and you have inventory in a fulfilment centre, we’ll notify you by email.
Once the review has been completed, verify that you have converted your product to FBA. If not, then convert your product.
If you disagree with the results of your product review, upload a new SDS or exemption sheet that supports your claim.
