Important: Updates to Restricted Products (Other products - Magnet sets and water absorbent beads)

Announcement reposted from Amazon:

Please be informed that updates will be made to the Other products category of the Restricted Products help page as of July 19, 2023. Along with these updates, we will simplify the content and correct typos and errors.

Magnet sets, water absorbent beads will be added and updated as follows:

  • Magnet sets, water absorbent beads: Magnetic entertainment products and absorbent synthetic resin toys without PSC mark required by the Consumer Product Safety Act are prohibited. Please see METI’s website for details: (Japanese)

We will also update the link to the METI website for the Consumer Product Safety Act.

For magnet sets and water absorbent beads, the Act permits importers and manufacturers a transition period (from June 19 to December 18, 2023) for PSC mark labeling. We will ask sellers to submit documents to confirm product safety and compliance before listing. We will publish help pages with details of the new document review requirements on Recalls and product safety before the end of the transition period.
