Why enrol your brand in the Amazon Brand Registry?

Amazon Brand Registry helps you protect your registered trade marks on Amazon and create an accurate and trusted experience for customers.

Your enrolment in the Amazon Brand Registry provides access to powerful tools including proprietary text and image search, predictive automation based on your reports of suspected intellectual property rights violations, and increased authority over product listings with your brand name.

Enrol now so your brand and Amazon can work together to reduce potential intellectual property rights violations and promote an accurate representation of your brand on Amazon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Currently, brands must have a registered trade mark in the form of a word mark to be eligible to join the Brand Registry. The trade mark must match the brand name printed on products and/or packaging.

Please note, we currently only accept fully-registered word marks that have been issued by national government trade mark offices in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, or by the European Union Intellectual Property Office. If you have a word mark registered in the United States, Canada, Mexico, India, or Japan, please visit the corresponding Amazon Brand Registry site to enrol in that marketplace, by clicking on the flag symbol at the top of this page. Updates to the Brand Registry eligibility criteria will be posted to this page.

Currently, to enrol a brand in Brand Registry, you must provide the following information:

  • Brand name that is registered as a trade mark in the form of a word mark.
  • Trade mark number.
  • Information whether your trade mark is an EU trade mark or a national trade mark (and if the latter, in which country your trade mark is registered); if your mark is registered both as an EU trade mark and a national trade mark in one or more EU member states, we only need the EU trade mark information.  
  • Images of the brand’s logo, if you have one.
  • Images of products and packaging that carry the trade marked brand name in a permanent fashion. If the product is not branded, the packaging must be branded.
  • A list of product categories (e.g., apparel, sporting goods, electronics) for which the mark is registered.
  • A list of countries where the brand’s products are manufactured and distributed.

Yes.  If you are a seller who enrolled a brand in the Brand Registry prior to 30 April, 2017 and the brand meets the above-listed eligibility requirements, we encourage you to re-enrol the brand in the new Amazon Brand Registry. If your brand does not meet the current eligibility requirements there is no required action for you at this time. You will continue to be able to list without a Global Trade Item Number (e.g., UPC, ISBN, EAN, JAN) by using a key attribute such as part number or model number. 
 
For access to the new Brand Registry features, we invite you to get started now. Please use your existing username and password to get started. You’ll be asked to complete a new brand application for each eligible brand that you would like to enrol in the new Brand Registry.

No, you do not have to enrol in Amazon Brand Registry to obtain an EAN or Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) exception. However, successful enrolment of eligible brands in Amazon Brand Registry will enable you to list products for these brands without an EAN.

If your brand is not currently eligible to enrol in Amazon Brand Registry, you may still qualify for an exemption. More information about eligibility requirements for exemption can be found here. Please note that this link requires a Seller Central login.

Once a Brand Registry account is created, the user who registered the brand and/or the user that has been designated as the Administrator may submit a request to add additional users to the account, including agents.
