Amazon due to end Responsible Person Service

Since 2021 Amazon has required sellers selling into Europe from outside the EU to appoint an EU Responsible Person or Responsible Person for CE-marked products. Sellers inside the EU have been able to use Amazon’s Responsible Person Service, which was provided via the Responsible Person dashboard (now the “Manage Your Compliance” dashboard.

In a further development, Amazon’s Responsible Person Service will be ending from the 31st March 2024. From this date Amazon will require all sellers of CE Marked products to appoint an EU Responsible Person or Responsible Person for CE-marked products.

The role of the EU Responsible Person or Responsible Person for CE-Marked Products is to provide a point of contact for the European Market Surveillance authorities and be responsible for communicating with those authorities. As part of the role the EU Responsible Person will hold documentation detailing a product’s compliance with EU Directives and EU Regulations and provide details of them when requested.
