Amazon’s Dietary Supplement Requirements

Amazon categorizes dietary supplements as products containing vitamins, minerals, herbs, or other substances like amino acids or fatty acids, available in various forms such as tablets, powders, liquids, and capsules.  

To sell your supplements or NHP on Amazon, you must comply with the appropriate regulations and laws, including… 


Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) outlined in U.S. FDA 21 CFR 111


Nutritional labeling regulations in U.S. FDA 21 CFR 101.36


Regulations for Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventative Controls (HARPC) for Human Food in U.S. FDA CFR 117

Additional Requirements for Supplement Sellers

In addition, Amazon requires 


Evidence of product enrollment or participation in a third-party quality certification program (renewed annually).



Valid good manufacturing practice (GMP) certificate (renewed annually) issued by a recognized third-party certifying authority AND Certificate of Analysis (COA) for each active or dietary ingredient from an ISO/IEC 17025-accredited lab.

Key Amazon Certificate of Analysis (COA) Requirements 

An Amazon-compliant COA must include several key elements: 


Nutritional Content

Detailed analysis of the supplement’s nutritional makeup, ensuring that the contents match the product labeling.


Product Identification

The COA should clearly state the complete product name, along with its batch number, which is vital for tracking and quality assurance purposes. 


Analytical Method Details

This includes a description of the methods and techniques used in testing the product. Amazon requires validated methods performed by an ISO 17025-accredited laboratory. 


Prohibited Substances Check

A crucial part of the COA is verifying that the supplement does not contain any of the substances that Amazon has explicitly forbidden for certain supplement categories (e.g., weight loss, sports nutrition, sexual enhancement).
