Hi Sellers, today we’re excited to launch a new series in Seller Forums, Ask Amazon! From time to time, we’ll pick a specific topic that is top of mind for Sellers and answer as many questions as possible on the subject.
Our first Ask Amazon topic is pesticide product listings. We have previously announced in Seller News that listings of pesticides and pesticide devices require the Pesticide Marking attribute to be completed by adding an EPA Registration number and/or EPA Establishment number, or a certification that the product is exempt from EPA regulations. We recognize that both the Amazon policy and the EPA regulations are complex, so we’ve got members from our product assurance team on hand for the next day to answer questions you post about pesticide product listings.
Here’s how it will work: we’ll leave this topic open today until 8 pm PST. You can post any questions you have as a reply, we ask you to keep it to one question per reply. If a question you have has already been posted, give it a like and we’ll make sure to prioritize the most popular questions first. We’ve got moderators keeping tabs on this topic throughout the day, and they may merge posts with similar questions so we can answer them all in one place. In the meantime, our team is reviewing your questions and we’ll respond to them by 5 pm PST tomorrow (February 24th).
As you’re thinking about any questions you might have, here are the links to the news article forums posts that we’ve published over the past few months:
And here are a few of the help and policy pages on this topic:
Finally, please note that while we will strive to provide helpful and tailored responses to our selling partners, Amazon is not able to provide legal advice or otherwise interpret regulatory requirements on situations specific to individual sellers. For information about EPA regulations, please see epa.gov/pesticides.
Alright Sellers, now ask away!
