Reminder for FBA sellers: lithium battery requirements

Starting January 1, 2020, battery manufacturers and distributors (when you import products into the EU, you are considered a manufacturer of those products) must provide a lithium battery test summary, per a United Nations standard known as UN 38.3. This global requirement applies to lithium batteries and products containing lithium batteries.

When selling with Amazon on FBA in Europe, you are responsible for obtaining this test summary for any ASIN that you sell, or you risk being banned from selling the product on Amazon and any units of this ASIN in fulfillment centres may be disposed of at your expense.
