Amazon sent this message out. “We would like to inform you about a change in our policy in Seller Central. Starting February 15, 2017, all sellers selling in Health and Personal Care category will be required to list the ingredients for all over-the-counter medicines and dietary supplements in the Inventory File Template. Additionally, images of ingredients and/or nutritional information listed on product packaging should be uploaded as secondary product images on product detail pages.”
This is important as a lot of sellers sell in these categories and SP has zero tolerance in these categories. Try not list an ingredient which they can pick up as restricted, especially prevalent in the UK (changes in US normally happen before UK so likely will be announced shortly).
2) I spoke to Yoav from BrandShield. A new Israeli Tech company that protects small PL brands on online market places. Discussed with Yoav: a) The importance of protecting your PL brand. b) Is it necessary for small tiny brands?

Emails on RO emails say contact email@example.com to dispute the RO complaint and have the RO email firstname.lastname@example.org to have the complaint rescinded. This is the same email. I’m quite sure they mean email@example.com to rescind so tell the RO when they withdraw to use both email addresses.

If you see an item on your health dashboard that you have not sold in a long time and is deleted from your inventory – but you never appealed, email SP with your story and ask them to annotate your account. They usually do.
“Please note, we do not accept Commercial invoice/pro-forma invoice/order confirmation/purchasing list/contract document/delivery report as proof of authentication. Please provide invoices for the below listed ASIN(s)” – When they say this, they really just want the word INVOICE on your invoice and nothing else.
