Selling Car Warning Lights in Germany

Important: If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all applicable EU and local laws and regulations, as well as Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings.

The sale of all car warning lights on the amazon.de website must be in compliance with the requirements of the German traffic regulations. If an ASIN is found non-complaint, sellers are required to submit compliance documentation for the ASIN.

Who should submit documents?

If you are contacted by Amazon, you must provide documents to confirm the safety of your products. Amazon requires certain documentation that indicates testing compliance with applicable standards or regulations for each product you are applying to sell.

How do I request approval to sell Car Warning Lights?

Amazon’s policies require that car warning lights sold through the Amazon website meet specified certification standards. You will receive an email if one of your ASINs is affected. In that case, if you wish to continue selling these products on Amazon, please submit the following information to road-safety@amazon.de.

  • Company name
  • Seller/Vendor ID
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • A list of ASINs you are applying to sell

To speed up the process, please submit one application per family ASIN/variation/model number. For each ASIN or model number you wish to list, provide genuine product images clearly showing the below.

The type approval of a car warning light is shown by two approval marks and two approval numbers that must be affixed on the product itself.


  1. A circle surrounding the letter "E" followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted the approval, followed by 10R, a dash and the approval number.


  2. A circle surrounding the letter "E" followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted the approval, a "T" or " X" according to the category of the unit, followed by "A" or "B" or "R" according to the color of the unit and "1" or "2" according to the class of the unit and lastly the approval number.


If you do not submit the required information, we will consider that failure as admission that the product was not compliant with the certification standards, so we recommend submitting the information even if you do not intend to continue selling the product.

Note: By applying to sell these products, you certify that all information you submit is true. All sellers on Amazon are responsible for ensuring that their products and listings comply with all applicable laws and regulations. Amazon listing requirements may not reflect all applicable laws, so compliance with these requirements does not exempt you from checking applicable laws and regulations.
