We have updated the requirements to offer pesticides and pesticide devices. Please be aware that, under EPA regulations, products may be considered pesticides or pesticide devices because they make pesticidal claims, as further described below.
As of October 6, 2020, all listings of pesticides and pesticide devices will require the Pesticide Marking attribute to be filled in with evidence of an EPA Registration number and/or EPA Establishment number, or a certification that the product is exempt from EPA regulations. Proactively providing the required EPA information on the product detail page will minimize disruption to your product offerings.
Beginning January 11, 2021, listings of pesticides and pesticide devices without this information may be subject to removal. For detailed instructions for adding the Pesticide Marking attribute to new or existing pesticides listings, along with some answers to frequently asked questions, see the Compliance ID Attribute – Pesticide Marking page.
Additionally, approval from Amazon is required to sell these products. As per Amazon policy, only U.S. residents are eligible to list pesticide products on Amazon.com. If you haven’t received approval, login to Seller Central to start the application process on the Selling Application page.
You may not be aware you are selling products the EPA considers pesticides or pesticide devices, as it can be hard to identify which products qualify and why. The EPA classifies pesticides or pesticide devices as products that are marketed to disinfect, repel insects, remove allergens, or prevent bacteria, or that make any other antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal, antibacterial, or other pesticidal claims. If any of your products have been identified as a pesticide or pesticide device, you will receive an email from us with a list of the affected ASINs.
As a reminder, per Amazon policy, all pesticides and pesticide devices must comply with EPA regulations and all applicable state and local laws, including registration and labeling requirements. Amazon also requires you to provide accurate information about your products on the product detail page.
