To list professional dental products on Amazon, you must use one of two inventory files depending on the product you want to list: either “Medical devices” or “Other professional healthcare products”.

Medical Devices

A medical device is a specific product type defined by EU law. A medical device is a product made to:

  • Prevent, diagnose, monitor, alleviate or treat disease
  • Prevent, diagnose, monitor, alleviate or treat injury or handicap
  • Investigate, replace or modify human anatomy or a physiological process or state
  • Control conception
  • Clean, disinfect or sterilise devices

An accessory for a medical device is an item that is not a medical device, but is intended by its manufacturer to be used together with one or several particular medical devices to specifically enable the devices to be used in accordance with their intended purpose or to specifically and directly assist the medical functionality of the medical devices in terms of their intended purposes.

A medical device does not achieve its main intended purpose by pharmacological, immunological or metabolic means (such products are usually classified as medicines and cannot be listed in the Professional Dental category).

You may only list compliant medical devices that can be sold “over the counter”. Compliance requirements for medical devices include:

  • The “CE” marking
  • Notification to or registration with the national competent authority
  • Local language instruction manuals and safety information

Permitted products include:

  • Dental mirrors
  • Gloves
  • Dressings

For more examples, please see Medical Devices.

You cannot list medical devices that:

  • Can only be sold by pharmacies
  • Can only be sold to customers with a prescription
  • Can only be sold to healthcare professionals
  • Require training

Prohibited products include:

  • Dental drills
  • Implants
  • Burs

For more examples, please see Medical Devices.

You cannot use the Fulfilment by Amazon service for any medical devices with specific storage or transportation requirements, such as temperature or humidity control.

In order to list any medical device products, you must provide information about the product’s compliance, intended sales channel, and storage and transportation restrictions. You will also need to provide any additional product information or evidence of compliance that Amazon requests to create or maintain your listing.

Other professional healthcare products

You can use the Other professional healthcare products” inventory file for any other professional dental supplies that are not medical devices, such as record-keeping products and labels.

Using an incorrect inventory file to create and list your products in the Professional Dental category could result in the removal of your products from the Amazon Marketplace and might affect your selling privileges.
