FBA Dangerous Goods program terms and conditions

The version of these terms and conditions in English is the definitive legal version. Translations into other languages are available for your ease of reference only.

These terms and conditions (“Terms”) supplement the Amazon Services Europe Business Solutions Agreement (“BSA”) and govern participation in the FBA Dangerous Goods program (the "Program"), previously known as the Hazmat Pilot. Unless defined in these Terms, capitalized terms have the meanings given to them in the BSA.


  1. Program overview

    The Program allows sellers enrolled in the Program to offer dangerous goods through Fulfillment by Amazon (“FBA”), as permitted by these Terms. In addition, sellers are required to obtain, in accordance with Amazon’s Program Policies, country-specific approval from Amazon to sell in certain product categories.

  2. Seller eligibility

    Your participation in the Program is subject to Amazon's approval. Amazon may change seller eligibility criteria for the Program at any time. Sellers on the waitlist will be notified when an opportunity to participate in the Program becomes available.

  3. Product eligibility

    Amazon will receive, store, and fulfill only those dangerous goods that are approved for sale through the Program ("Program Units"). Only materials belonging to classes and divisions 2.1, 2.2, 3, 4.1, 5.1, 5.2, 8 and 9 as defined in the latest version of the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (“ADR”) will be considered for eligibility as Program Units, under certain conditions. To learn more about the dangerous goods classes and divisions allowed for a specific marketplace, refer to the Dangerous goods identification guide. Additionally, in order to be eligible for the Program, products must be:

    • Eligible for FBA and successfully registered in FBA
    • Packed in limited quantities only (as defined in the latest version of ADR 3.2.1, 3.4)
    • For UN3171 (battery-powered vehicle): Meet the requirements of special provision 240 (as defined in the latest version of ADR 3.3)
    • In new condition

    Amazon may decline or cancel the eligibility of any product for the Program at any time, for any reason. When listing an item that is regulated as a dangerous good, you must provide specific product information and documentation to Amazon. For more information, refer to Required dangerous goods information and documentation.

  4. Shipping and packaging requirements

    You must ship Program Units only to the Amazon fulfillment center designated by Amazon. All dangerous goods sent to Amazon must comply with all applicable regulations to ensure that they are transported, stored, handled and labelled safely and correctly. You must package Program Units in a safe and commercially reasonable manner, complying with all applicable packaging, labeling, and weight and size requirements. The dangerous goods Units you send to Amazon will be considered Unsuitable Units if they are not Program Units or do not otherwise meet the requirements in these Terms. Such Unsuitable Units cannot be returned to you and may be disposed of immediately as provided in the BSA.

  5. Inventory storage limit

    To better manage fulfillment center storage space, Amazon may apply an inventory storage limit on your Program Units. Amazon may modify this limit from time to time. You can see your current storage limit and usage for the Program on the Inventory performance dashboard in Seller Central. You must not exceed your storage limit for the Program.
