ISO Certification and Selling Your Products on Amazon

Amazon has become the largest online retailer in the world. In the United States, more than half of all Amazon sells come from third-party sellers becoming the top online marketplace in the country with thousands of sellers listing products for sale. Operations of this reach and magnitude require regulations to ensure products meet the quality and safety standards consumers deserve and need. These regulations go beyond the reviews and product evaluations made by buyers.

In order to grant permission to sell to honest and legitimate sellers only, ISO certification is one of the requirements for selling your product on Amazon. This is particularly relevant to the health and beauty industry as well as pet food supplies, as their products need to be manufactured under a recognized Quality Management System (QMS). As stated on the Amazon website, a QMS is a “process-oriented approach to documenting and reviewing the structure, responsibilities, and procedures required to achieve effective quality management within an organization.” Some of the items that will be streamlined and perfected when building a QMS into your business will be:

  • Document control
  • Determining process interactions
  • Management of resources such as the work environment
  • Service development
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Continuous improvement
  • Quality control

If you or someone from your company has enough knowledge and is acquainted with the specific requirements found in the ISO 9001 standard, you might choose to build your QMS yourselves. Alternatively, you have the option of outsourcing this process to a consultant which will help you and guide you in the right direction and build a quality management system that is ready for certification.

It is important to note that the ISO 9001 certification applies to your business as a whole, not your actual products. Please check what additional product-specific certifications are required by Amazon.
