The business function EHS: Continuous Improvements for Product Safety (LOG_EHS_PS_CI_3) contains the following enhancements to the SAP component Environment, Health and Safety (EHS):

Product Safety

The Component/Transport Cl./Ref./Inher. screen under Substance Where-Used List now has a new Inheritance (Inh. To) field. If you select this indicator, the system determines all specifications that have inheritance relationships with the selected specifications.

The Edit Specification: Copy Template screen now has a new Retain Data Origin/Provider checkbox. If you select the Retain Data Origin/Provider indicator, the Data Origin and Data Provider fields are retained when the data is copied from the source specification to the target specification.

On the Determine Secondary Data screen, the Information icon indicates whether documentation is available for a user exit. When you choose this pushbutton, the documentation is displayed.

For more information, see Product Safety (EHS-SAF).

Substance Volume Tracking

A lock function for processing regulatory lists has been added to the Substance Volume Tracking component since simultaneous processing of regulatory list data can lead to inconsistencies in Substance Volume Tracking. The lock function prevents these inconsistencies by ensuring that the certain reports are no longer executed in parallel for a regulatory list.

For more information, see Substance Volume Tracking.

Global Label Management

You can use the sample labeling scenario to create labels for specifications to which no materials are assigned.

More filter options for label determination have been added.

The label tree has been adjusted: If only one specification is specified in label determination, the label tree does not contain nodes for the material.

For more information, see Global Label Management.
