To ensure that the inventory in an
Amazon fulfilment centre is safe for storage, handling and transportation, we check for
products that might be regulated as dangerous goods (also known as hazardous materials).
For more information, see Dangerous goods identification
guide.Also, find out more about the FBA dangerous goods review process.
Use the tool below to provide a Safety

Safety Data Sheets and exemption sheets in
Required dangerous goods information and documentation.
Safety Data Sheets are for chemical-based products that might be regulated as

otherwise powered. You can download the appropriate template from the list on the
right-hand side of this page.
