If you are using any type of product(s) in your video(s) (predominately for the sake of reviewing products), then you have to make sure that you provide the FTC statement in your video description to make clear to your viewers, and to YouTube, that you are not getting paid for promoting that product. In the previous blog, "How Partnered Advertising Works: Partnership Program Part 47", I've explained how to go about appropriately checking the boxes for your video ad information when it comes to something specific like Ad Placement.
If you are not getting paid by outside Advertisers (recieving revenue through YouTube), this is the disclaimer statement you should have in your videos if you happen to be talking about a product or showing a product in your video.
FTC Disclaimer: I don't recieve free products nor am I paid for making these videos, and I've purchased everything featured in this video myself.
If you haven't provided the FTC statement/link in your video description, you leave YouTube no other option but to assume that an Advertiser is paying you to promote their product. This will get you in trouble with your Adsense because YouTube has made deals with advertisers to promote their ads on your videos so that YouTube and you, the Partner, can get paid. If you are getting paid from another advertiser doing Ad Placement and YouTube doesn't know, it doesn't give the Advertiser who has made a deal through YouTube, confidence in promoting their ads on your videos if they have to be in competition with another Advertiser on the same video, especially when they have already paid for their advertisement.
