How to Tell if a Product is Hazmat (Dangerous Goods)

To ship most hazmat products (dangerous goods) to a fulfillment center, Amazon requires you to enroll in their FBA dangerous goods program.

Amazon's FBA dangerous goods program has rules and safety measures for products that could be harmful if mishandled. These include chemicals, batteries, and other materials that could be hazardous if they leak or break. By ensuring these products are packaged safely and shipped in a manner that minimizes the risk of accidents during delivery, the FBA dangerous goods program plays a vital role in maintaining safety standards.

For details on this program or to apply, check out Amazon's article covering it here: FBA dangerous goods program

Navigate to Amazon's article covering the FBA dangerous goods program and scroll to the Manage Dangerous Good Classification section.
