Ensure Compliance with the New Policy

As of March 7, 2022, Amazon will require all sellers of radio-enabled devices to complete the FCC Radio Frequency Emission Compliance attribute. Thereafter, Amazon will remove listings that do not comply.

Radio-enabled devices include (but are not limited to); Wi-Fi devices, Bluetooth devices, radios, mobile phones and other devices with cellular connectivity, automatic identification system (AIS) devices, broadcast transmitters, signal boosters and devices with cellular technology. Amazon detail what is a Radio Frequency Device here. You can visit the FCC website for additional guidance on what is considered a radio frequency device.

Sellers of radio-enabled devices must do one of the following to maintain their listings on Amazon:

  • Provide evidence of Federal Communications Commission (FCC) authorization – either an FCC certification number or contact information for the Responsible Party, as defined by the FCC.
  • Certify that the product is exempt from FCC requirements.

Next Steps for You as an Amazon Seller

You are a reseller or third-part retailer on Amazon

You should deal directly with your supplier of the device manufacturer. Your supplier or manufacturer should be able to supply you with evidence that the device has an FCC certification number or provide you with the contact information of the Responsible Person. They will also inform you whether the device is exempt from FCC requirements.

You are the owner or the manufacturer of the device

TÜV SÜD can offer you a full range of FCC and EMC testing and certification services to bring you full FCC compliance and, therefore, Amazon’s Radio Frequency Compliance Policy.
