Amazon cracks down on portable stoves
Recently, many sellers of portable stove products have reported that their products have been removed from the shelves or received a warning email from Amazon, requiring them to upload relevant safety inspection reports before they can put relevant products on the shelves.

If you list products on the Amazon marketplace, you must comply with all federal, provincial, territorial, and local laws and Amazon policies (including this policy) that apply to those products and listings.
Portable stoves covered by this policy
This policy applies to portable decorative light sources that use alcohol-based fuels to produce hanging flames in open-cup jars. These products generally consist of a pot or base, usually made of ceramic or other heat-resistant material. Also known as portable brazier, portable fireplace, stove, fire bowl, patio stove, flame pot, flame lamp, or table stove.
Amazon's policy for portable stoves
As required by Amazon's policy, all portable stoves shall be tested and meet the requirements of ASTM F3363-19 (Standard Specification for Portable Ventless Appliances for Burning Liquid or Gel Fuels).
Note: The test report must include an image of the product being inspected, and the image should be sufficient to demonstrate that the product being inspected is identical to the product listed on the detail page.
Amazon may ask you to provide the following information at any time, so it is recommended that you have this information readily available for submission:
● your company name (if applicable) and seller number;
● your contact information: email address and telephone number;
● a list of all portable stoves you publish;
● Product and product packaging images of all portable stoves you post (if applicable). Images must include all sides of the product and product packaging for our review;
Product pictures or test reports (if applicable) that demonstrate that the product complies with the warning label requirements (ASTM F3363-19 Section 6.1);
●Commodity pictures or test reports that can prove that the commodity complies with the instructions requirements (ASTM F3363-19 Section 6.1.9);
●A test report issued by an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory confirming that each item has been tested and meets the applicable requirements above.

1.2.4 Oil lamps that do not have open reservoirs such as refillable oil lamps, outdoor garden lamps/table lamps that use wicks for fuel (see Appendix X1).
1.3 This specification establishes minimum safety requirements for equipment to help ensure a reasonable level of safety for normal use, thereby increasing personal safety and reducing fire, death and injury.
1.4 This specification is not intended to replace other safety measures such as adult supervision, close monitoring of the product during use, and fire detection, alarm or fire suppression systems.
1.5 Values expressed in SI units are to be regarded as standard values. Values in parentheses are explanatory or approximate information.
1.6 This specification is used to measure and describe the response of materials, products or components to heat, flame and external forces under controlled conditions, but does not in itself contain the risk of fire or fire risk for materials, products or components under actual fire conditions. All factors required for the assessment.
1.7 This standard is not intended to address all safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health and environmental practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limits prior to use.
1.8 This International Standard has been prepared in accordance with the internationally recognized principles of standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guidelines and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
