In September 2023, the CPSC (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) passed a resolution making the UL 4200A-2023 standard a mandatory consumer product safety regulation. Based on the UL 4200A test results, a General Certificate of Conformity (GCC) is issued, applicable to consumer products containing button batteries to reduce the risk of children aged 6 and under swallowing these batteries. The related requirements are also incorporated into 16 CFR 1263 and will be enforced starting March 19, 2024.

According to the policy, Amazon U.S. has implemented relevant review requirements for button batteries, coin batteries, and products containing such batteries since April 8, 2024.

 

Key Points:

- All products containing button batteries must meet the UL 4200A standard to be exported to the United States.

- The UL 4200A standard applies to all products containing button batteries, regardless of whether the batteries are replaceable or rechargeable.

 

Amazon Requirements:

- Applicable button and coin batteries: This policy applies to flat, round, single-unit button and coin batteries with a diameter typically ranging from 5 to 25 millimeters and a height between 1 to 6 millimeters, as well as consumer products containing these batteries.

- Button batteries are typically powered by alkaline, silver oxide, or zinc air and have a lower voltage rating (usually 1 to 5 volts). Coin batteries are powered by lithium, with a voltage rating of 3 volts and are generally larger in diameter than button batteries.
