Product safety is a primary concern of both government regulators and online marketing systems.
Amazon, for example, requires Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for food products, including dietary supplements, as well as for any products that have constituents which may pose a safety hazard.  Think of substances that meet the requirements of California's Prop 65.  Any such substance in your product would need a SDS to be sold on the world's premiere online market.
Dr. Goodman and Counsel Fucetola are available to provide certified Third Party SDS documentation for your product.  Depending on the complexity of the product, the costs will range upward from $500. 


Here is what the Regulation suggests:
