How it works
Step 1: Create Compliance Requirements List
Start by creating a compliance requirements list to learn about the requirements for your product:
- Product regulations
- Labeling requirements
- Documentation/Certification requirements
- Lab testing requirements
Step 2: Create Product Certificates
Use the product certificate templates to self-issue mandatory certificates/documents:
Children’s Product Certificate (CPC), General Certificate of Conformity (GCC)
Declaration of Conformity (DoC), FCM Declaration of Compliance
Other countries: General Certificate/Document Template
Step 3: Create Product Label Files
Use the product label templates to self-issue mandatory product and packaging label files:
CPSIA Tracking Label, Country of Origin, Textiles Label
GPSD Label, CE Label, Textiles Label, FCM Label
Other countries: General Label Template
Step 5: You’ve taken your first steps to ensuring compliance
Implementing these steps can help you reduce the risk of product safety and other compliance issues (e.g. incorrect or missing labeling). By extension, this can help you to minimize the risk of:
1. Product recalls, sales bans, and fines
2. Customs clearance issues
3. Amazon and marketplace product removals

Frequently Asked Questions
Important: This FAQ is specific to the Amazon related features of the Compliance Gate Platform. You can read the full FAQ on this page.
How is the Compliance Gate Platform relevant to Amazon sellers?
Amazon requires sellers to ensure compliance with relevant regulations and standards in the relevant country and marketplace. For example, businesses selling on Amazon in the United States must ensure that their products are compliant with US product regulations.
Likewise, those selling in France or Germany must ensure compliance with EU product compliance requirements.
More specifically, this means that you as an Amazon seller must ensure that your products are:
1. Lab tested and proven to be safe/compliant
2. Correctly labeled
3. Documented (e.g. certified)
The Compliance Gate Platform helps with certain aspects of this process – for example creating compliance documents and certain label files.
How can a compliance requirements list help my Amazon business?
The Compliance Gate Platform allows you to create compliance requirements lists that include a broad overview of compliance requirements. The list is automatically generated based on your inputs:
- Country/market (EU or USA)
- Product category (e.g. Watches or Electronics)
- Parameters (e.g. Age group and materials)
The lists covers the following:
- Chemical and heavy metals restrictions
- Testing requirements
- Documentation requirements
- Labeling requirements
- Official sources
You must create a compliance requirements list before you start selling a product on Amazon, in order to start preparing lab testing, labeling and documentation in advance.
That said, we do not guarantee that we cover every single product, regulation or rule that may apply to a product sold on Amazon.
You can use the document templates to create product certificates and declarations. The documents can be downloaded as PDFs and then submitted to Amazon upon request.
- Children’s Product Certificate (CPC)
- General Certificate of Conformity (GCC)
- Low Voltage Directive DoC
- EMC Directive DoC
- Radio Equipment Directive DoC
- RoHS Directive DoC
- Toy Safety Directive DoC
- PPE Regulation DoC
- Ecodesign Directive DoC
Note that product certificates and declarations often require a lab test report as supporting documentation.
Amazon also requires that products are correctly labeled. You can use the labeling templates to create label files in SVG format that can be applied to the product and the packaging.
- CPSIA Tracking Label
- Country of Origin
- US Textiles Label
- EU Textiles Label
- GPSD Label
- Low Voltage Directive Label
- EMC Directive Label
- Radio Equipment Directive Label
- RoHS Directive Label
- Toy Safety Directive Label
Note that Amazon often requires photocopies of product and packaging labels.
The Task Lists serve as introductions to general product compliance related topics, such as safety standards and labeling. We added the Task Lists to the Compliance Gate Platform to help you and your other team members better connect the dots and understand how labeling, documentation, and lab testing fits together.
Lab test reports are mandatory for a wide range of products sold on Amazon. You can request lab test quotations and upload test reports through the Compliance Gate Platform.
Can I use the Compliance Gate Platform if I have already received a compliance request from Amazon?
Yes, you can use the platform to book lab testing, create label files, and generate product certificates. However, it can be too late at this stage as your product may be inherently non-compliant (e.g. incorrectly labeled or technically non-compliant).
Do you guarantee that the Compliance Gate Platform can help resolve a compliance request?
No, we offer no such guarantee. The Compliance Gate Platform has a limited scope in terms of covered product categories, document and label templates. Further, it is up to you as a user to fill out the templates correctly, and carefully read the sources to understand the requirements.
