Product Safety Automatic MSDS shipment

Hi everybody,

I am doing a feasiblity study on implementing the product safety module for MSDS shipment. I would like some clarification on the implementation steps.

The scenario is: MSDS documents are created and stored outside SAP.

I am able to create the substance. a template and a variant.

Since the documents are created in PDF format outside SAP, I don't know If a WWI server should be installed in this case?

I am not able to generate a report. No data is found...Maybe a missing config??

What is a good a approach to link n material to n MSDS documents?

Thank You

Joni

    Hello Joni,

    In order to use EH&S Report Shipment you need to have a WWI server installed.

    Even if you want to to send and print MSDS that have been created outside of SAP.

    Furthermore you need to upload these MSDS into SAP EH&S for the whole process to work.

    You can not generate documents within EH&S Product Safety without a WWI Server.

    But why do you want to create documents if the MSDSs are created outside of SAP?

    You can use TR CG36VEN to upload MSDSs.

    Hope this helps

    P.s.: There are two 'Cookbooks' available: one for Report Shipment and one for WWI servers. They have been posted in this form...

      Hello Joni,

      If you just want to email the PDFs and not have a cover sheet send along with it - it might work without WWI server - but I'm not a 100% sure...

      If you don't have an email address for all of the clients - and you therefore need to print the MSDS and send them via mail you need a WWI server for sure.

    Hello Jonida,

    Look at this best practice [http://help.sap.com/bp_chem603/BBLibrary/HTML/939_EN_DE.htm|http://help.sap.com/bp_chem603/BBLibrary/HTML/939_EN_DE.htm]

    You don't need to install WWI server.

    The MSDS is linked to a susbtance, and this sustance to 0-n materials.

    Regards
