    Dear Krishna

    SAP GTS is a solution which is used for special purposes. Not all SAP customer (in chemical industry) use SAP GTS.

    SAP EHS Management on the other hand (EHS classic and EHSM) has a long history. Here now two different objects come in place "the specification" and the "chemical object".

    EHS classis is dedicated to processes as:

    MSDS/SDS generation

    Label Generation/Label Handling

    DG management


    The use of EHS Waste is limited: same for EHS IH and clearly on very low level SAP EHS OH

    First we need a "good" definition of the term "trade compliance solution"; to make is "simple"

    You can maintain, if you would like,"trade related" data as well in SAP EHS. And if needed you can use "Notification check" to integrate in SAP MM/SD processes (blocking of process)

    Therefore: based in infrastracture / IT strategy etc. either SAP EHS is used alone or in combination with SAP GTS..

    In most cases: if SAP GTS is used thet then "trade complaince" part is as well handled in SPA GTs and not EHS

    To understand this you need to understand the "main" differences. E.g. in SAP EHS you can not maintain/handle etc. easily Customs topics; here SAP GTS is the solution

    Therefore: there is no easy answer to your topic possible and if you ask SAP customers: you will fand many kind of scenarios to use SAP EHS and SAP GTS "together"
