Amazon’s policy requires all sellers of toys to have the safety documents listed below. Upon request, you must promptly submit the required safety documents for each ASIN or model number you want to list.

  1. Genuine product images or its packaging showing (i) CE marking, (ii) product name or model number, (iii) the brand’s name or registered trade mark, and (iv) the address where the brand can be contacted (preferably its EU-based representative).
  2. EC Declaration of Conformity: This document can be obtained from the brand owner, the EU/UK importer, or the EU/UK authorized representative.

How to submit information

If you receive a request from us for compliance documents, complete the following steps to submit the requested information:

  1. In Seller Central, select the Performance tab and choose Account Health.
  2. Under Manage your compliance in the bottom right corner, click Product Compliance Requests.
  3. To add compliance or appeal for a single product, click Add/Appeal Compliance. To add compliance or appeal for multiple products, select each product on the left hand side of the product and click Action Selected Products at the top of the product requirement table to make a selection about how you would like to submit documents and information.
  4. Provide compliance documents and information in the Provide Documents section, or provide appeal information and documents in the Appeal Request section.
