Supply chain standards

In addition to complying with other programme policies, Amazon expects all products that are sold in the Amazon store or provided to Amazon to be manufactured or produced in accordance with Amazon’s supply chain standards . Our standards include the Amazon supplier code of conduct, which requires that products be manufactured in safe, healthy and inclusive work environments.

We will not allow products in the Amazon store that are made:

  • Using forced, indentured or child labour, including products:
  • In hazardous or unsafe working conditions, including in those factories deemed ineligible under the Bangladesh Accord
  • In a facility where workers were subject to discrimination or abuse (physical, verbal or psychological)

Amazon evaluates credible allegations or reports of the above.

If Amazon has reason to suspect certain products do not meet our supply chain standards, we may request the following from you:

  • Demonstration of policies that align with Amazon’s supply chain standards
  • Auditing protocols, processes for assessing facility working conditions, or participation in an approved industry association that requires factory monitoring
  • Factory information for where products are produced or manufactured
  • Unannounced audits of the factory in question, potentially including unsupervised worker interviews

If you supply a product in violation of the law or any of Amazon’s policies, including those produced in violation of Amazon’s supply chain standards, we will take corrective actions, as appropriate. These include, but are not limited to, returning inventory at your expense, immediately suspending or terminating selling privileges, destroying inventory in our fulfilment centres without reimbursement or terminating the business relationship.
