Do I need FDA certification for kids products?


do you know if Amazon is requesting a FDA Certification for New Kids Products ?

Is this something new ?

Thank you

FDA is not something new and no one can exactly answer you on this except Amazon itself. Create a test listing and Amazon will let you know if it needs such certifications.

Yes, Amazon is requesting FDA certification for new kids products. This is not something new, but it is a requirement that Amazon has been enforcing more strictly in recent years.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is a US government agency that regulates food, drugs, medical devices, and other products. FDA certification means that a product has been tested and proven to be safe for use by children.

Amazon requires FDA certification for all new kids products that are sold on its platform. This includes toys, games, clothing, and any other product that is intended for use by children under the age of 12.

There are a few exceptions to this requirement. For example, Amazon does not require FDA certification for kids’ books, furniture, or clothing that is not designed for children under the age of 3.

If you are selling a new kids product on Amazon, you will need to provide documentation of FDA certification. This documentation can be in the form of a Children’s Product Certificate (CPC) or a letter from the FDA.

You can find more information about Amazon’s requirements for FDA certification on the Amazon Seller Central website.

Please note that FDA certification is not required for selling kids products on Amazon in all countries. However, it is important to check the requirements for the specific countries where you plan to sell your products.

Great ! Thanks . The last time they just requested CPC and Lab Testing. That’s why I wanted to know if they request FDA now ?

I get it now. Your product is definitely live on Amazon then.

Watch your competitors and observe their listings and see if they have mentioned FDA certified or stuff like that. That means Amazon might demand it. FDA costs a fortune. It is not cheap. If you can afford it, maybe go for it. I also sell in a category that requires FDA, but I haven’t done it as can’t afford it and been selling for two years smoothly.

PS: that is one of my clients’ brand that I manage.

Perfect ! Thank You so Much.
