Data Model for MSDS Authoring with SERC

Hi All,

I am posting on SCN after long time, and I regret for having missed so many great discussions here. 😔

We have set-up following data model for our EHS system, but not getting the desired result of filling all standard property tree values.

  • Mapped all rule sets and database files; expert server is running fine
  • Created raw material & finished product real_sub specifications
  • Performed BOM-BOS.
  • Finished product Real_Sub ‘Exact composition by products’ populated with Raw material Real_sub compositions
  • Maintained Raw material Pure_Sub level compositions for both ‘Exact composition by products’ & ‘Standard Composition’
  • Ran expert rule ZEXP_COMP at finished product Real_Sub level; standard composition for finished product populated with pure substances
  • Loaded List_Sub and UN Listed substance data from SERC
  • Referenced List_Sub to Pure_Sub
  • Loaded Section 9 & 10 data through data templates
  • Assigned UN Listed substance to DG_CL_SUB
  • Referenced DG_CL_SUB with the finished product Real_Sub

Now, when we are running all expert rules one by one at finished product specification level, we are not getting the desired result of
corresponding property tree values filling. Are we missing something in the data set-up procedure or our experts rules are not mapped properly?

Please help.

    Hi Pavan,

    the rule sets don't fill all needed properties. So which ones are missing?

      Hello pavan,

      It is my understanding that all GHS Rules need to be run on PURE_SUB level. Some of them need - at least how I see it - mapping changes.

      Make sure to read and fully understand this document provided by SAP:

      "Concept_for_GHS_properties_rules.pdf" - and the corresponding rule set documentation because of this hint in the mentioned document:

      b. Run the global GHS rule to generate GHS classification and Labelling using the functionality which copies EU GHS list data. This would apply where a customer decides to use the EU list as a fall-back or default GHS classification for the whole world. This could be combined with the use of the EU_to_GHS rule for the case that a substance does not have EU GHS list data. If the global GHS rule is to be used for this purpose the EU GHS regulatory list would need to be added to the rule set mapping.

      Hope this helps
