Amazon Packaging Announcement

Posted in Packaging on 28th November 2018

All Amazon vendors will soon have to comply with new requirements regarding their packaging certification program. These requirements ensure that packages are the right sized, protective against damage, ready-to-ship without the need for additional packaging, and ideally easy to open, and recyclable. By August 1, 2019, all items larger than 18″ x 14″ x 8″ or greater than 20 lbs. and sold through Amazon must be designed and certified as ready-to-ship (Tier 1 – FFP or Tier 2 – SIOC) within their Frustration-Free Packaging programs.

Amazon is also offering incentives for vendors that comply ahead of time. Packaging Europe published their own article on the announcement here.

As an ISTA-certified lab, Anecto can fulfil your testing needs, including the ISTA Ships in Own Container (SIOC) test procedure.
