Customer safety is Amazon’s primary priority and, as a seller, you must take care that the products you supply are not only safe but also compliant with the relevant regulations.
This page provides guidance on existing requirements for CE marked products to help you understand how to sell these products compliantly in the EU.
The CE mark is a self-certification mark applied to a product by the manufacturer. The CE mark indicates that the product meets health, safety, and environmental protection standards for the European Economic Area (EEA). In addition, EU legislation requires that the manufacturer of a CE marked product issues an EU Declaration of Conformity for the product (discussed in further detail below).
Not all products sold in the EEA are required to be CE marked. Common examples of products that are required to be CE marked include toys, electronics, personal protective equipment, machinery, construction products, gas appliances, recreational and personal watercraft, pressure vessels, and measuring equipment.
You can find a full list of the products subject to CE marking, as well as information on the steps that a manufacturer needs to take to affix the CE mark, here:
You should make sure that the products you sell meet the CE marking rules. To do so, we recommend that you do the following (with the help of your legal counsel, if needed):
The EU DoC is a written declaration issued by the manufacturer to demonstrate the compliance of a CE marked product with applicable EU product requirements.
A DoC must include information clearly identifying:
When requested, the DoC should be provided in a non-editable format (for example, PDF), and must be signed by a responsible employee of the manufacturer (including the employee’s printed name and position).
Further guidance on the creation of the DoC and the related requirements can be found here.
For some product types, the EU has created harmonised standards that manufacturers, other economic operators or conformity assessment bodies can use to demonstrate that products comply with relevant EU legislation. For detailed information, refer to the information on this page.
Depending on the product type, there may be additional required compliance documents (for example, test reports or certificates) to further demonstrate the compliance of your products. We may require you to provide these at short notice, so it is important to ensure that you have access to any required compliance documents for all of your CE marked products.
For a more detailed overview of Compliance regulations, we recommend that you review the Product Safety and Compliance Seller Central page, which also has a more detailed overview of individual regulations.
In addition, you can find a list of external consultants who might help you with questions regarding regulatory requirements on the Compliance Solutions page in the Service Provider Network.
