Dangerous goods (hazmat) that ship without proper packaging and required labels can pose a safety risk while in transit and face delays. Check the Box, an initiative by the US Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), offers resources and guidance on shipping dangerous goods.
Dangerous goods include common household items such as aerosols, hairspray, nail polish, batteries, and electronic devices. It's your responsibility as a seller to know whether your products are dangerous goods and to ensure their proper handling and safe transport.
To help you identify such products, also watch our Seller University video Dangerous Goods Awareness. For information about what can and can't be sold through Fulfillment by Amazon, visit Dangerous goods identification guide (hazmat).
