A few days ago, Amazon has changed the minimum packaging size for FFP and SIOC from 9 inchesX6 inchesX0.375 inches to 6 inchesX4 inchesX0.375 inches. The effective date is 2020-02-01, and the exemption deadline is 2020-08-01 , And made a supplementary explanation for the changes in the certification of some products caused by the update of this size. If the product fails the ISTA-Amzon.com-SIOC test, and the package size of the product is larger than 18 inchesX14 inchesX8 inches, a fine of US$1.99/package will be imposed.
The following is an official example of Amazon:
Example 1: The product packaging size is 19 inchesX4.5 inchesX4.5 inches
This size, according to the previous certification requirements, although the length of the product is greater than 18 inches, according to the previous minimum package of 9 inches X 6 inches X 0.375 inches, the product width (4.5 inches) is not greater than the minimum size of the product certification and is exempt from fines. According to the updated minimum certification size of 6 inchesX4 inchesx0.375 inches, the product will be fined because the length is greater than 18 inches, and the length, width, and height exceed the minimum certification requirements.
Example 2: The product packaging size is 19 inchesX3 inchesX3 inches
Although the length of this size is greater than 18 inches, according to the new minimum certified size of 6 inches X 4 inches X 0.375 inches, because the middle size (width) is less than 4 inches, the penalty will be avoided.
