Selling Toys in Canada

Important: If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all federal, provincial, and local laws and Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings.

In Canada, all toys intended for use by children 14 years of age and under must meet federal safety standards, as indicated in Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA) including:

Amazon may request toy safety documentation at any time to confirm compliance.

Who should submit documents?

If you are contacted by Amazon, you must provide documents to confirm the safety of your products. Amazon requires certain documentation that indicates testing compliance with standards or regulations for each product you are applying to sell.

How do I request approval to sell Children’s Toys?

Amazon’s policies require that Children’s Toys sold through the Amazon website meet specified certification standards. If you are contacted by Amazon, please submit the following information to child-safety@amazon.com:

  2. Seller ID/Vendor ID
  3. Email address
  4. Phone number
  5. A list of ASINs you are applying to sell
  6. Product images and manuals, as applicable (images should include all relevant safety information, compliance markings, and small parts and choking hazard warnings)
  7. Test reports from an ISO 17025-accredited testing laboratory confirming each product was tested to the requirements listed below:
