Background documentation Integration of Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


Country-specific laws and prescriptions must be obeyed when dealing with waste disposal (especially hazardous waste). For example:

·        Germany: Closed Substance Cycle Waste Management Act

·        USA: 40CFR

·        Great Britain: Environmental Protection Act and Codes of Practice

The Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) component provides the data basis for these requirements. Through the implementation of this component, you can use the full scope of the Waste Management component (EHS-WA) for the logistical processes of mySAP Utilities Waste Management. The integration includes the following processes:

·        Master Data

·        Create waste disposal order

·        Plan waste disposal orders

·        Output waste disposal order

·        Confirm waste disposal order


The following prerequisites must be fulfilled:

·        You maintain waste-specific data (for example, substance data, waste key) in the EHS Waste Management component.

·        You maintain the Allocate Business Partner and Container Location activity in Customizing for SAP Utilities, under Waste Management ® Interfaces ® Integration of EH&S Waste Management.


The following functions are integrated in the different processes:

Master Data

·        Business Partner

You must create a waste generator from the business partner category in EHS-WA for each business partner in IS-U-WA. You must also create a waste generator from the point of generation category in EHS-WA for each business partner container location in IS-U-WA. When you enter a hazardous waste in the service frequency in IS-U-WA, the corresponding objects are created in EHS-WA.

·        Service Frequency

You maintain and display the following information at service frequency level:

¡        Waste (material)

Display: Waste text

¡        Waste code

Display: Waste code text, waste catalog

¡        Planned quantity and unit of waste to be removed

¡        Waste generator

¡        Number of single/collective waste approval

Display: Notification type, processing status, validity, transporter, disposal company

Create waste disposal order

When you create the waste disposal order, the disposal document for the single waste disposal order and the dock receipt for the collective waste disposal order are created. The following checks are carried out:

·        Status and validity of single/collective waste approval

·        Comparison of quantity to be removed with the permitted quantity defined in the waste approval

Plan waste disposal orders

When planning the waste disposal order you can, amongst other things, change the planned order date. For this reason you must repeat the checks described under Create Waste Disposal Order. The waste disposal documents (disposal documents and dock receipts) are adjusted.

Output waste disposal order

·        Single waste approval

The disposal documents generated when creating the waste disposal order are output with the waste disposal order.

·        Collective waste approval

When you output the waste disposal document, the disposal document for the collective waste disposal order is created. This disposal document is output with the waste disposal order and the dock receipt generated when the waste disposal order was created.

Confirm waste disposal order

In addition to the billing-relevant quantity, the fields Estimated Quantity Removed and Actual Quantity Removed are confirmed in the waste disposal order.

The estimated quantity disposed of is required when the actual quantity disposed of, which is determined based on the data from the weighing document, is only confirmed later. The estimated quantity disposed of updates the disposal document, dock receipt, individual waste disposal order and collective waste disposal order.

The actual quantity disposed of overwrites the estimated quantity disposed of.
