    Hi,

    Sanjay is precise what exactly happening in domain; when comes to SAP EHS; DGM implemenation; General scenario would be any internationally active company like to classify a new developed product in accordance with DG legislations.

    Steps: -1. UN listed substance is created

    2.-Classification is created

    3.-Real substance is classified and hazard inducer is assigned.

    DG Classification is company specific and on creation of DG classification, regulatory data from UN listed sub is pulled into DG classification via u2018Referenceu2019. During the creation of DG master, DG classification is assigned to a material or substance by material assignment.

    Regards,

    Hi,

    UN numbers or UN IDs are four-digit numbers that identify hazardous substances, and articles (such as explosives, flammable liquids, toxic substances, etc.) in the framework of international transport. Some hazardous substances have their own UN numbers (e.g. acrylamide has UN2074), while sometimes groups of chemicals or products with similar properties receive a common UN number (e.g. flammable liquid, not otherwise specified, have UN1993). A chemical in its solid state may receive a different UN number than the liquid phase if their hazardous properties differ significantly; substances with different levels of purity (or concentration in solution) may also receive different UN numbers.

    UN numbers range from UN0001 to about UN3500 and are assigned by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. They are published as part of their Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, also known as the Orange Book. These recommendations are adopted by the regulatory organization responsible for the different modes of transport.
