Selling Toys in EU

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 children’s toys on the Amazon website must meet specified certification standards. Note that Amazon may remove your selling privileges for failing to meet these standards. If an ASIN is found to be 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 that you are applying to sell.

How do I request approval to sell Children’s Toys?

Amazon’s policies require that children’s toys 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 child-safety@amazon.co.uk.

  • Company name
  • Seller/Vendor ID
  • Email address
  • Phone number
  • The EU marketplaces where you want to continue to list your ASINs
  • 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 or its packaging showing:

  1. CE marking
  2. Name and address of manufacturer or registered trademark

EC Declaration of Conformity – This document can be obtained from the brand owner or official importer of the product in the EU.

A test report from an accredited laboratory, confirming that your product was tested according to the standards listed in the following table. This can also be obtained from the brand owner or official importer in the EU.

If you do not submit the required information, we will consider that 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.
