New requirements for consumer products with button cell or coin batteries

Announcement reposted from Amazon United States:

Effective immediately, if you sell consumer products that contain button cell or coin batteries you must provide the following documents to ensure compliance:

  • Proof of compliance with Underwriters Laboratories 4200A (UL4200A) from an ISO 17025-approved lab
  • General Certificate of Conformity that lists compliance with UL4200A

Previously, Reese’s Law only applied to button cell or coin batteries themselves. In the interest of safety, the law now applies to the batteries and all consumer products that contain them.

We will suppress listings if valid compliance documents are not provided.

For more information, including which batteries are affected by this policy, go to Button cell and coin batteries and products that contain them.
