What are the Amazon Canada test standards for children's toys?
In Canada, all toys intended for children 12 years of age and younger must meet federal safety standards under the Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), including:
Canadian Toy Regulations (/2011-17)
Regulations on Consumer Products Containing Lead (/2018-83)
Phthalates Regulations (/2016-188)
Regulations on Surface Coating Materials (/2016-193)
Amazon may request toy safety documentation at any time to confirm compliance.
Who should submit relevant documents?
If Amazon contacts you, you must provide documentation confirming the safety of the product. For each product you apply to sell, Amazon requires specific documentation from you to demonstrate that it has been tested and complies with a standard or regulation.
How do I apply for approval to sell children's toys?
Amazon policy requires that children's toys sold through Amazon.com must meet certain certification standards.
1. Company name
2. Seller ID/Supplier ID
3. Email address
4. Phone number
5. List of ASINs you are applying to sell
6. Product images and brochures, if applicable (images should include all relevant safety information, compliance markings, and small parts and choking hazard warnings)
7. A test report issued by an ISO 17025 accredited testing laboratory confirming that each item has passed the test and meets the following requirements:
Toys for Children 14 and Under
/2011-17 (toys) and /2016-188 (phthalates), /2016-193 (surface coatings), /2018-83 (lead) (if applicable) and small parts warning
So what about other types of qualified documents?
The compliance documents of the Canadian station are to do the corresponding test according to the product and issue the corresponding test report.
Electronic products and home appliances can do the Canadian Safety Report CSA report. (If the product is electronics, home appliances, lamps or other products, just provide samples + application form for testing!)
