Warning if changing Vendor

Is there a way to "red" alert if a vendor change is being made to a specific part number.

Example: We have 3rd Party Certifications that are only valid with the supplier that was audited. We would like to have SAP warn us if a new vendor is being created or the current vendor is being marked for deletion or if fixed vendor is changed.

Alert could be as simple as a pop-up message saying - Warning - 3rd Party Certification Required On This Vendor/Part Combination

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    There is functionality around Vendor master approval- IMG==> Finaicial Accounting ==> Accounts Receivables and Payables ==> Vendor Accounts ==> Master Data ==> Preparation for creating Vendor master data -->Configure sensitive fields

    If you define a field in the customer/vendor master record as "sensitive", the corresponding customer/vendor account is blocked for the payment run if the entry is changed. The block is removed when a second person with authorization checks the change and confirms or rejects it

    Authorized user will approve the change using FK08. It may help to some extent.

    In addition to the above comment by Jagdeep, you’ve to use the dual control functionality along with workflow for receiving the warning message through a notification either in your SAP inbox or to your official email-id.
