Dangerous Goods Manage­ment

The violation of legal requirements in the area of dangerous goods leads, in the mildest case, to administrative offense proceedings and will lead to a corresponding fine. 

However, if an accident does occur, the consequences are usually much worse and those involved face criminal penalties if dangerous goods regulations were violated or have been implemented incorrectly. 

This can not only lead to financial damage, but also to a loss of image for the company concerned. 

With the dangerous goods management SAP EHS offers an efficient solution to monitor the applicable regulations and to ensure a legally compliant transport of your dangerous goods. 

The dangerous goods management of the EHS is integrated as well into the material master as into the sales and distribution modules of the SAP system and will thus allow material based dangerous goods checks to be executed in the background early in the logistics process, reliably preventing non-compliant transports. 

SI PRO Consulting Services for Dangerous Goods Manage­ment

The most important prerequisite for a reliable dangerous goods management is complete, correct and current master data in your SAP EHS system. 

The master data available in the material master and in the substance workbench can for example subsequently be used to author legally compliant safety data sheets (SDSs) and labels with the required dangerous goods information. 

Using the EDI technology, IDocs may be used to transfer the dangerous goods information to third party service providers, e.g. logistics service providers. 

Last but not least, the same dangerous goods data may also be used to automatically print dangerous goods information on your delivery notes or to create transport documents for various modes of transport. 

SI PRO will gladly support you to always stay on top of your dangerous goods master data. From the basic setup of SAP EHS through the implementation of an optionally available content package with extensive and regularly updated data (like the 3E ERC+ Suite) to support with the loading and distribution of the dangerous goods data SI PRO offers all required services from a single source. 

Besides the functionalities described in the Dangerous Goods Master Data tab, dangerous goods checks in the sales and distribution module represent another important function of the dangerous goods management. 

This means that the admissibility of transporting a certain material via a certain route and the respective mode of transport to a certain destination country can be checked early in the process (e.g. during the offering process). The dangerous goods checks can also be carried out in later document types (sales order, delivery or transport). 

In addition to the mere examination of the admissibility of the transport of a product with a certain mode of transport, the EHS also offers the possibility of calculating the points according to ADR ("1,000 points rule") or the admissibility of mixed loading of certain products in a transport unit. 

If the system detects a violation of legal regulations, further processing of the affected document is prevented and an inadvertent violation of applicable dangerous goods regulations is effectively prevented. 

SI PRO has extensive knowledge of the subject of dangerous goods checks and their implementation in SAP EHS and will be happy to support you with implementation in your system.
