 PS: Managing Exposure Scenarios - Outbound Processing


The ESCom standard for exchanging exposure scenarios between IT systems was developed to enable exposure scenario information to be communicated along the supply chain in a consistent and harmonized manner. Supporting the standardized exchange of exposure scenario data along the supply chain helps to reduce the manual effort as well as time and costs during the transfer and communication of regulatory data. Outbound processing supports suppliers in shipping ESComXML files together with the extended safety data sheet (eSDS) to their customers.
