As of April 26, 2022, Amazon will introduce a new attribute called
software_update_supported_to_date across 49 Product Types and related XSDs in 8 European marketplaces. This is a new, optional attribute, representing the last date until which software updates will be supported by manufacturers for smart devices. The goal is to comply with the upcoming Omnibus Directive, under which product detail pages for Digital Goods must include details of the product’s functionality including applicable technical protection measures, its compatibility and its interoperability (“Functionality Information”).
This change applies to the following marketplaces: ES, UK, FR, NL, DE, IT, SE, PL.
Developers with applications that upload or update product listings using feeds based on the category-specific inventory file templates and XSDs are affected. The affected Product Types are as following:
If you have an application that is affected by this change, be sure to adjust your application workflow on the category-specific file templates and XSD templates. Please note: the template links may be different for different marketplaces. We recommend you search Seller Central for updated templates in your marketplace.
