What does a safety data sheet (SDS) require?
An eligible SDS must comply with the following requirements:
Created or updated within the last five years
Include new GHS/CLP hazard identification information
Match your product listing:
The listing title (the product name as it appears on the
detail page) must be the same as the product name shown on
The manufacturer or brand name of your product on the SDS
must be the same as the manufacturer or brand name displayed
on the detail page
Include all 16 standard SDS sections
What are the most common reasons an SDS is rejected?
The product name or brand on the SDS does not exactly match the
product name or brand on the detail page. If you edit the detail
page to match your SDS, you need to submit the SDS again after you
have made the edits to the detail page.
Information in the hazard identification section and the
transportation section conflicts. For example, the hazard
identification sections states the product is flammable but the
transportation section does not.
The SDS does not contain all 16 mandatory sections.
The product’s flash point is below 140 degrees Fahrenheit (60
degrees Celsius) but the product is declared as not regulated,
instead of flammable, in the transportation section.
The SDS is either not dated or is over 5 years old.
The document uploaded is not an SDS (for example, test report or
certification sheet) and therefore cannot be used for

categories above, or if you submit an exemption sheet in place of an
SDS, it will be rejected.

Can I upload multiple files for the same ASIN?
Yes. If you need to upload more than one file per ASIN, repeat steps 1
through 3 for each document.
If I submit an SDS or exemption sheet for a "parent" ASIN, is that document
used to review all the "child" ASINs?
No. The appropriate document must be submitted for each ASIN variant, also
known as a "child." To

How long does the review process take?
Each ASIN is typically reviewed by the Dangerous Goods team within 4
business days. Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

attributes that could classify the product as dangerous goods. To learn

Why did my ASIN suddenly become a dangerous good?
Amazon is continuously conducting reviews of products in our
catalog to identify products regulated as dangerous goods. The goal is to
ensure safety and compliance. During these reviews, changes in
classification can happen. If you disagree with your product's
classification, please upload a new SDS or exemption sheet through the
document upload tool in this page.

I need to submit an SDS or exemption sheet?
Being approved to sell in a specific category or subcategory may allow you
to sell a broad number of ASINs in that category or subcategory. However,
