The export data of the General Administration of Customs shows that in 2022, the total toy export volume of toys will be 48.356 billion US dollars, a year-on-year increase of 5.6%, which is lower than the 10.5% growth rate of my country's goods trade exports in 2022.
In addition to the impact of the epidemic and inflation, the growth rate of toy exports has plummeted. Product compliance risks are also challenges that manufacturers need to face. Once products have quality problems, they will be punished by removal from shelves. Amazon's cross-border e-commerce platform is also famous for its strict control over toys, a popular category.
Recently, the Amazon Japan station issued an announcement that the policy requires all sellers selling children's toys to submit safety documents for review. Sellers must promptly provide safety documentation issued by an accredited testing laboratory or organization.
The details of the changes to the seller’s policy are as follows: First, the effective date of the changes is clarified, which will take effect on January 16 , 2023 . Until the day before the effective date of the change, it will be reviewed in accordance with the policy before the change.
