UPDATE: New Amazon Requirements for Nutritional Supplement Companies

April 27, 2021

Are you a nutritional or dietary supplement company who sells your product on Amazon? ZQUARED is helping you stay ahead of the game.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Effective on May 3, 2021, you will need to submit documents to obtain approval to list the affected products. If you do not obtain approval to sell these products prior to May 31, 2021, Amazon may remove these listings.

After May 3, 2021, you may only change the price and quantity of your listing. 

IMPORTANT: Any other changes will make your listing unavailable, and you will be required to submit compliance documents to reinstate your offer.

Why is This Happening?

This updated requirement helps ensure current and future dietary supplements meet applicable regulations or standard requirements. For more information about compliance requirements, see the following link: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/GUCMGZBFXQ97P2SU

To stay ahead of these associated challenges, we highly recommend proactively creating a template to provide us with the required information. Doing so will reduce the downtime associated with any potential product approval reviews.

How do I Seek Approval to Sell the Affected Products?

After May 3, 2021, if you would like to seek approval to sell the affected products, complete the following steps to start the application process: 

  1. In Seller Central, select the Inventory menu, and then select Add a Product.
  2. Search for the ASIN you want to sell.
  3. In the search results, select the Listing limitations apply link next to the ASIN.
  4. Select the Request Approval button to start the application process.

For FBA sellers only: If you do not want to continue selling these products and have any inventory of these products remaining in our fulfillment centers, you’ll have 30 days after listing removal date to create a removal order. You can find instructions for creating a removal order on the Remove inventory (overview) page: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/G200280650
