If you are a “supplements” seller, then this article is for you! From the beginning of December, Amazon has attacked supplements sellers, asking to provide more supporting documentation about their products.
New requirements for sales of supplements on Amazon
To all sellers of supplements, we would highly recommend to get familiar with these requirements directly on Amazon:
New re-approval process for existing sellers
But for existing sellers, successfully doing their business, sometimes there is no time to read about all of Amazon’s changes in policy. This means, that even though you, as a seller, have already passed through the approval process and have provided before all necessary for Amazon documentation for your product, now you would need to do it again in order to prove compliance requirements.
In other words, if you sell food or dietary supplements, Amazon might ask to update the documents anytime to ensure that products are compliant with local laws and safe for customers.
The task for Amazon is huge and also understandable, though the procedure is frustrating; listings are deactivated, it takes time to obtain all necessary documentation for each product, and there are additional expenses because Amazon now asks for additional certifications from independent laboratoris. But remember, that you do not sell pencils or picture frames. You sell Supplements and if you passed your approval a long time ago, it’s necessary now to renew your right to offer the health products to customers.
New requirements for selling supplements on Amazon
If you received a notification from Amazon to update the compliance documents, be ready to provide:
1. Certification of Analysis (COA) and/or MSDS – for every product separately and up-to-date
2. Product Packaging Picture (PPP)
3. Letter of Guarantee from Manufacturer (LoG)
