HAZMAT guidelines

Dangerous goods (also called Hazmat) are substances or materials that might pose a risk while storing, handling or transporting because they contain flammable, pressurised, corrosive or otherwise harmful substances.

To learn more about dangerous goods, see the Dangerous goods identification guide (UK Page).

If products are regulated as dangerous goods, you must provide Amazon with specific product information and documentation (for example, a Safety Data Sheet) via the Upload dangerous goods documents tool (UK Page).


Check if an ASIN is a Dangerous / HAZMAT GoodUse the  Upload dangerous goods documents tool (UK Page) to provide a safety data sheet (SDS) or an exemption sheet. For more information, visit Required dangerous (hazmat) goods information and documentation (UK Page). Documents uploaded through this tool will be reviewed by the Dangerous Goods team within four working days (Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays).  

Document types

Safety data sheets (SDS) are for chemical-based products that might be regulated as dangerous goods (see examples of common dangerous goods/ UK Page). If you cannot obtain an SDS for your product and it does not contain any harmful chemicals (such as alcohol, acid or sodium), you can upload an exemption sheet for products without harmful chemicals.Battery exemption sheets are for products that are, contain, or are sold with batteries, or that are otherwise powered.
