Question about licenses for PO's

We have been screening export sales orders and deliveries for sometime now for SPL, Embargo and license determination.

There is now a requirement to screen purchase orders for licenses but in my reading I saw it mentioned that only UB PO's can be screened for license determination. Is that true?

In the process we are using now I want to screen NB purchase orders.

    Hi Chris,

    It is possible to screen both UB and NB PO's. But it's again based on the type of screening you wanted to do.

    If you need Export License determination to be done on the Stock transport order(UB and NB)- You will need to switch the application level for the POs from MM0A to SD0A. You can't use the external procurement POs for this case though they are also linked to document type NB.

    If you need Import determination to be done- You can do it with both NB and UB.

    I'm not sure where you found that only UB POs can be screened.

      OK I think I understand but here is where I am at now. I originally created a regulation that requires a license when shipping to certain countries out of the EU. I set the regulation as an Export reg did all the necessary config and was able to assign licenses automatically where needed.

      Has I was testing the solution I could not find sales docs or deliveries for some of the materials and finally found out they are being moved on NB PO's.

      So I changed the reg to include imports etc., classified with import control class etc. but I am seeing a couple things that don't make sense and tells me my config isn't quite right.

      I finally do see that the system at least recognizes the new legal reg in the screening now. before this it had not. But it is still telling me it can't find any relevant country.

      The other thing the document itself only shows under Display Existing Export Documents even though in the log it says it's an import document and when I go to the Import log there is no data.

      Before I realized there was a note to change the Import to export on transfer I assigned the PO types to export orders and I am thinking that's why they are showing in the export list but I woul have tought that it would say it's an export doc which it doesn't.

      Any ideas?
