  Secondary Data Determination


In secondary data determination, you can carry out the following activities:

  • Derivation of data (secondary data) from existing data

    Example Example

    The existing R and S phrases of the specifications for individual ingredients are transferred via a defined interface to an external system in which the R and S phrases for compositions that contain the specifications of these ingredients are determined. The derived secondary data is then transferred back to the SAP system.

    End of the example.
  • Checking the derived data

    An import enables data in the SAP Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S) component to be updated. If this data was used to determine secondary data, you can check this secondary data and derive it again if necessary.


  • User-defined enhancements with user exits

    Secondary data is derived from and checked in function modules that are integrated in user exit management in Customizing for Basic Data and Tools . You can also develop your own user exits.

    In general, secondary data can be derived and checked in the SAP system or in an external system.

  • EH&S Expert

    Using the EH&S Expert supplementary application, you can define sets of rules and use these sets to derive secondary data for data from specification management . You can then use this data, for example, to determine and check the notification status of specifications.
