Configuration for new company

Dear Experts,


If new company is getting created in SPRO then does EHS also gets impacted. I mean do we also  need to do customization in EHS, if yes then what is the configurations or customization that are required to be created? Could you please list them. As far as my knowledge is concerned data in EHS is not company specific hence no separate customization is required.

    Hi Devdatt,

    We have two Company Codes on the same client, and there was no need to replicate any major customization.

    Well, I think that you must set again object id and so on in EHSPP01, revisioning your Exposure Group, but I think that most of HR customiziong you had for the actual society is still useful.

    Let me think on other impacts, and I'll write down more!

    Regards,

    Daniele

    We have only Dangerous Goods management and Product safety, GLM implemented here partially.

    We have only Dangerous Goods management and Product safety, GLM implemented here partially. So that is why I think that when new company code is created or added no customization is needed.

      regarding: "We have only Dangerous Goods management and Product safety, GLM implemented here partially. So that is why I think that when new company code is created or added no customization is needed."

      you are "wrong" (may be) (that means your assumption is wrong that no action is needed if new company code is added to SAP ERP).

      First you need to define what exactly is your scope of "product safety".

      If product safety covers e.g. safety data sheet distribution and Substance Volumen Tracking you need to adapt SAP ERP/SAP EHS set up (in most cases) to take care regarding an additional company codes. The same is true for Dangerous Goods Managment (e.g. context of dangerous goods check); depending on your GLM solution you are using additional adaptions might be required; but without further knowledge of your set up here no answer can be provided.

    Dear Christoph,

    Yes there is MSDS distribution here and dangerous goods checks are also performed. Want to understand from you what customizations  are needed if that is the case in GLM, product safety and DGM, if you could list them that would be quite helpful.

    • Dear Devdat

      MSDS distribution is triggered by SAP SD process; please check the corresponding EHS customizing, it is "well" explained what need to be done if additional company is activated. On the top there is an OSS existing explaoining the whole set up to be done in SDS/MSDS distrbution starting with SAP SD process; if you read cross it should be "clear" what need to be done if new company is coming up.

      The "same" is true for SAP EHS DG process; it is highly integrated in SAP SD process; if new company is activated in most cases you need to add entries here

      Regardin GL;M the answer here is not easy. Depending  on the "needs" for the new company you need to establish the "whole" GLM process (mainly scenario Make to Stock, Make to Order etc.). There is no documentation or guideline availabll to be used; and as GLM is used in most cases company specific no clear answer can be provided regarding the needed activities.

      Check may be:

      You will find a lot of references for MSDS/SDS distribution, DG checks etc. Regarding GLM and your specific quesition / topic: I am not aware of any similar thread in this FORUM.

      On high level: in EHS BD no action is needed; in EHS-SAF (SDS/MSDS), ESH-DG actions are needed
