Additional Details

If a product has been marked as relevant for compliance in the product master, the system checks safety data sheet data when a sales or delivery document is saved. Any relevant change to a material triggers a safety data sheet check. If an item in the document is relevant for the check, the system first verifies that a ship-to country and the address of the sales organization is given. If not, a warning is created and the user is informed about the missing data.

As a next step, the system verifies whether, for the ship-to country, safety data sheets are required. If no safety data sheet is required for a ship-to country, the check for the item is completed successfully. If the ship-to country requires safety data sheets, the system checks whether the documents exist in all required languages. If no released safety data sheets are available or languages or key information are missing, the system raises a warning for the item, informs the user, and creates a request for the product stewardship specialist.

The request allows the product stewardship specialist to assess the data for the product and take or initiate the required actions to provide the missing safety data sheets in required languages.

The delivery is blocked if particular information is missing. When the safety data sheet is provided with the required information, the system releases the compliance requirement and closes the request. If the delivery was blocked, the system changes the delivery status from Blocked to OK.

Effects on Configuration

The system creates notifications to the product-stewardship department to complete missing data for checks or to request the safety data sheets.

By default, these notifications are enabled. However, you can disable the notifications in the SAP Fiori launchpad settings.
