 Define Conditions for Safety Statements


The Conditions for Safety Statements (CoSSta) is a function within the EH&S Expert rule editor. Conditions that are created in CoSSta are used in the set of rules for safety statements. When secondary data is determined for a specification, the set of rules defines which result phrases are transferred to the specification. This allows phrases in a variety of properties to be assigned when safety data sheets or standard operating procedure documents are created.


Before you can use the conditions for safety statements, you require the SAP EHS Regulatory Content, Safety Data Sheets Authoring package.

For the purpose of managing conditions in the EH&S Expert rule editor, you require the Property Tree for Safety Statements. The property tree is shipped with SAP Note 2231758Information published on SAP site.

The rule editor is available in English only.
