How to Meet Amazon Supplement COA (Certificate of Analysis) Requirements
Understanding Amazon’s new requirements for supplement testing can be hard, but we can help.
We are aware of the rapidly changing, uncertain requirements of Amazon for dietary supplements.
One of the key new requirements is for marketers to submit certificates of analysis, of COA for many dietary supplement products.
As of late 2020, Amazon.com is now requiring many supplement products to submit lab reports as evidence that their products are independently tested and meet label claims for active ingredients listed on the label.
There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to testing, COA’s or meeting Amazon requirements, so its important to evaluate your product testing program, and improve it so you can stay on the Amazon selling platform.

Here is a handy checklist of some of the main requirements for information now required by Amazon for many supplement products, in order to be approved for sale on the Amazon platform:
- Product name
- Lot number
- Manufacture date
- Valid expiration date, or ‘best by’ date
- Name and physical address of manufacturer or distributor
- Testing Lab method is scientifically valid, and the lab reports (Lab Certificates of Analysis are complete, and issued from an ISO 17025 certified laboratory within the past 6 months
- The COA contains a quantitative analytical result that supports the concentration of active ingredients stated on the supplement product label.
These are items that many sellers (and even FDA) has overlooked in the past. Considering the importance of Amazon to the supplement industry, these new requirements could determine which supplement marketers, or own-label distributors, are going to survive in the new world of stricter requirements on the Amazon website.
