Hello experts,

I need a help in hazardous substance filling scenario.

Maintained the hazard ratings for Haz substance master with the required data. Now started filling data for H phrases.

The value assignment( SAP_EHS_1023_089) maintained with usage for required countries and ratings. The required phrases are assigned.

1.I have created priority of filling of ratings and validity areas for fill

1. I have created text types

2.Done the CGAB assignment

3. Assign source object to target object done( But without a country)

The issue is i have to fill H phrases for example all countries ,hence left the country in Assign source object to target object as blank.

Is it mandatory to enter the country here? If so how do i do it for all countries( as i have only one country which can be selected).

Your help would be highly appreciated.

Best regards

George

Dear George

I can not follow your explanation 100%... So let us start step by step

https://help.sap.com/viewer/ff6d35a34fbe4bea99e4ac41b0d5db03/1709%20001/en-US/e766bd534f22b44ce10000000a174cb4.html?q=filling%20hazardous%20substance%20master

https://help.sap.com/viewer/248c3cdd7e6548999a7f5b95118f4522/6.06.19/en-US/e466bd534f22b44ce10000000a174cb4.html?q=filling%20hazardous%20substance%20master

https://help.sap.com/doc/saphelp_afs64/6.4/en-US/60/9e244269625633e10000000a155106/frameset.htm

1.) I am sorry The discussion on this topic is on very low level here.. You will not find many related threads

2.) Therefore: there seems to be limited use of this option

If i remember correct: the hazardous substance master is related to a combination of "material number" and "plant"

So let us start from CG02

1.) The value assignment( SAP_EHS_1023_089) maintained with usage for required countries and ratings => perfect !

2.) have created priority of filling of ratings and validity areas for fill => perfect

3.) I have created text types => perfect

4) .Done the CGAB assignment => ok

Now we have a correlation "Validity area" = "Country" = "plant" (and countr in which plant is located)

Let us assume this:

Starting with this statement: The value assignment( SAP_EHS_1023_089) maintained with usage for required countries and ratings.

Example; You have maintained two data records. E.g. one with "STANDARD US" and second with "STANDARD REG_EU"

The "filling" process should now check this validity area, make the link to the country and using the country make the link to the plant (If i remember correct !)

So: therefore: those data records with "STANDARD/US" will create "different" data in Hazardous Substance master in comparison to "STANDARD REG_EU).

So regarding "Is it mandatory to enter the country here?" i am not sure as we do not use the SAP standard

But i hope thte one of the links might help. Honestly: The documentation of this process is not "good".

C.B.

PS: one of the rare examples of other blogs/threads. Most of them will not help in this context; sorry

Hello C.B.,

Thanks a lot and sorry for my late reply . I have gone through most of the links and they are certainly helpful. SAP documentation has not much information about the HAZMASTER set up while filling except the common setting we have to do in customizing . I have tried checking few other documents as well,but not much helpful. At the moment Manual filling is working( like H phrase and other phrase enabled data) but still there are issues with the Hazard Substance master filling from Specification data base. I will investigate further and update if find any thing helpful.

Regards

George

Dear George

check in detail:

https://help.sap.com/doc/saphelp_afs64/6.4/en-US/60/9e244269625633e10000000a155106/frameset.htm

Story is as:

Part 1

In Customizing for the Hazardous Substance Master, you specify under Assign Countries and Regions to Warehouse Numbers in which countries and regions your hazardous substance warehouses are located

Part 2

Specification management contains data for a hazardous substance with the validity area Europe and data with the validity areaAmerica. You have hazardous substance warehouses in France, Italy, and Mexico. During filling, the system creates hazardous substance master records for France, Italy, and Mexico in the hazardous substance master for the material of the hazardous substance. The system assigns the data that has the validity area Europein specification management to the hazardous substance master records for France and Italy, and assigns the data that has the validity area America in specification management to the hazardous substance master record for Mexico.

It is important to understand that "GHS" is not like "GHS"... Refer e.g. to property tree. SAP has splitted GHS Labeling (you should have now four value assignment types in the system

To make sure that the "correct data" is mapped to the "Warehous, Plant etc." we need the link of the validity area/country to the country of plant or Warehouse.

As always: try to start you approach "simple" and the extend.

Important is the limitation in Filling (refer to SAP help): You can not support identifiers in standard (therefore; SAP standard is to be extended by you somehow as in miost cases you need identifiers as well)

Regarding your comment;

At the moment Manual filling is working( like H phrase and other phrase enabled data) but still there are issues with the Hazard Substance master filling from Specification data base.

What does not work ???

Hello C.B.,

Thanks again for your comments. At the moment i was able to create manually the entries in HSMD transaction for necessary storage hazard types and entries for H phrases and UN number in Additional tab.

As you rightly said, UN number etc. SAP library documentation shows there is a limitation in filling with identifier data.Hence i have created a phrase enabled characteristic for the same and assigned phrases and UN number and gets value in HSMD.

I am quite note sure now why filling shows error..It shows while filling that "change number cannot be created and filling cancelled". But it seems the change number is not the issue and also not authorization . I am still checking if the solution can be found.

Regards

George

Hello George

upps. "Change numbers"... Not a "good news". There are a lot of discussions running in use of "change numbers" in context of "DG"; but never have seen the same for "HSM".

What "exactly" have you tried to achieve during "Fill"? I am pretty sure that you should have the opion to do the job without use of change number.

C.B.

PS: Change numbers should be used only if you have > 5 years of EHS experince (ok: let us say: a huge number of years of experience in EHS)

PPS: check e.g. https://www.sapdatasheet.org/abap/msag/hsm_fill.html

Hi George,

you have to assign a country. Storage requirements are usually country-specific, like ICPE is only valid in France, so this is a mandatory field.
