Selling Natural Health Products or Dietary Supplements on Amazon? As an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditated laboratory, Vivariant can help you comply with Amazon’s Certificate of Analysis (COA) requirements at our state-of-the-art laboratory in Mississauga, ON.
Loose regulation has led to the proliferation of Natural Health Products (NHPs) and Dietary Supplements that may be contaminated or of variable strength and purity. As of 2020, Amazon requires selling partners to submit documentation that supports compliance with applicable regulations and/or standard requirements. Among the requirements, is a COA from an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory such as Vivariant.
In the United States, Dietary Supplements are defined as “a vitamin, mineral, herb or other botanical, amino acid, or dietary substance for use to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combination of the preceding substances. Dietary supplements come in different forms such as powders, pills, liquid drops, and oral sprays, and include categories such as vitamins and minerals, herbs and botanicals, sexual enhancements, weight management, and body building and sports nutrition. Dietary supplements may not contain articles that are approved as new drugs, other undeclared drug ingredients, or make disease claims.” Similar products are defined as Natural Health Products in Canada.
