Hello,

I need to know if there is a SAP Preferred Partner who is providing
Nutritional Information like Nutrients (Protiens, Fats, Carbohydrates...., etc)
and Label Templates (example Country Specific Nutritional Facts etc..), which can be Uploaded/Synchronized in SAP on a periodic basis. Also please inform if OOTB SAP EHS Specification Database already comes loaded with the above information, which can be synchronized on a periodic basis (if thats true than there wont be any need to search for a External Partner)

Please advise.

Thank You,
Rakesh

Dear Rakesh

your are on "wrong" track

=> there is no service provider which i know who is delivering data for "Nutritients" etc. This has to be handled you your self (so system would be empty)

=> but for e.g. CAS number related data:there are lot of serivces out there (e.g. by SAP) to load "Content" to SAP

Please check SAP Regulatory Content pages

Hello Christoph, Thank you for throwing light on this. I have one more important question

related to compliance check. Looks like SAP RD also has a compliance check functionality

by which one can restrict, prohibit composition substances etc based on various Compliance/Regulations.

I know there is another product called SAP SPRC, which also does similar compliance check.

What is the difference between the two products (SAP RD Compliance check and Compliance

Check through SPRC).. Thanks Rakesh

Hello Rakehs

forget about SAP SPRC (but just check (if needed) onlin help. If we will get S/4 HANA this solution will not be supported. Some alternative will come (we have no clear picture now)

SAP RD is used for "different" purpose. The "checks" in SAP RD are "other" checks (which are important yes, but in othere areas)

Thanks Chris for the answer. But my question

is as we know SAP Recipe Development supports

recipe development for chemical industry also.

Wont Chemicals be candidate for Reach Compliance etc.

In that case how will Reach compliance checks be done?

If we dont use recipe development compliance check

for doing REACH type checks, which tools needs to be

used?

Thanks Rakesh

Dear Rakesh

my be my answer was no clear enough: SAP Recipe Development is a helpful too. I am not aware of "content" (e.g. rules) to support "REACH" topics inSAP RD. But yes: if you are willing to do all "alone" (custom development) you can check REACH topics in SAP RD as well. SAP Recipe Development is a "special" tool in SAP environment. Most companies which need to consider REACh and other stuff just using EHS classic as part of SAP ERP. SAP Recipe Development is more or less i many cases an "add on tool" (which have some benefits to use)

But we have now a lot of "blogs" for SAP RD: check e.g.https://blogs.sap.com/2016/08/14/sap-recipe-development-what-is-the-difference-between-sap-rm-and-sap-rd/

https://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-74675

https://archive.sap.com/documents/docs/DOC-74568

The blogs created by Simon Zhang for SAP RD are a "must to read one" if you are interested in SAP RD

Dear Chris, thanks for the reply. But my apologies I am still a little stuck. Let me explain by example:

I thought ROHs basically restricts certain substances. Now with Recipe Development Compliance

we can also restrict certain substances.

(i) So my question would be, as an example what does SPRC (or its EHSM x successor)

do more in relationship to ROHs, which Recipe Development compliance cant do.. ?

(ii) Also does SPRC (or its EHSM x successer) do Compliance for both Process & Discrete Industries?

Thanks once again, Rakesh

Hello Rakesh,

In reagrds to your question

Looks like SAP RD also has a compliance check functionality by which one can restrict, prohibit composition substances etc based on various Compliance/Regulations. I know there is another product called SAP SPRC, which also does similar compliance check.
What is the difference between the two products (SAP RD Compliance check and Compliance Check through SPRC)..

Let's have a look at it from an industry view. One can distinguish 3 different "areas" within SAPs sustainability / compliance solutions:

  1. Product Compliance for the Discreet industry:
    The SAP module you should use for this is now SAP EHS Management aka EHSM . (The correct name is "Component extension for SAP EHS Management").
    In former times SAP SPRC was used for this. (And SPRC did cover other areas like the supply chain communication for REACH which is more in the area of the process industry)
  2. Product Compliance / Product Safety and Stewardship for the Process Industry:
    The SAP module you should use for this is SAP EH&S (The correct name is "SAP EHS Management as part of ERP")
  3. Compliance for the Food Industry:
    You should use SAP Recipe Development aka SAP RD. In former time there was a SAP Module called Recipe Management for it.

To my knowledge there is no data provider out there that has content for RD!

Hope this helps

Thanks Mark for the reply. But my apologies I am still a little stuck. Let me explain by an example:

I thought ROHs (or some other similar regulation) basically restricts certain substances. Recipe Development solution ( In addition to Food Industry, can also be used in Chemical Industry as part of SAP Best Practice for Chemicals ). And I think Chemicals can also qualify as candidate for ROHs (or some other similar regulation) compliance.

In Recipe Development Compliance solution (Above Option 3) we can also restrict certain substances.

(i) So my question would be, as an example what does Compliance within SAP EH&S (for Process Industry)

do more in relationship to ROHs, which Recipe Development compliance cant do.. ? Basically when to tell customer which compliance solution to use when ??

(ii) Also are u saying for Process Industry SAP EH&S (as part of ERP) needs to be used, what is the SPRO Path for this ?

Thanks once again, Rakesh
