Question about the Safety data Sheet Subsequent shipping

Dear EH&S experts,

I'm trying to fix an issue we have after the implementaion of the SDS manual shipping ;

Issue description : the subsequent shipping of Safety Data Sheet is not working.

I think I'm following the full standard in terms of process :

I flag changes as relevant in my real substance and when I generate a new version of a SDS (Version +1) , it's aslo defined as relevant changes...

In my generation variant, I have also set the "change Marks" option to 2 (Change Mark If Specification Exchanged).

In consequence, the SDS are not resent automatically....

It would be great if somebody could suggest me an idea on this question.

Best regards

    Hi Nicolas,

    Two things to check:

    1. You need to manually release a new main version of the MSDS.

    2. The system only does subsequent shipping if you did set the flag for subsequent shipping during the manual send.

    You can see if this flag was checked in the report shipment header ('Subseq, shipping' checkbox - on the upper right part)

    Hope this helps

      Hello Nicolas,

      Sounds good to me.

      Just double checking....

      1.I create a sds version 1. for a substance x and and ship it through the manual scenario (CG54 : SEND/ CUSTOMER + CONTACT)...this will lean to one record in CVD1..

      Make sure that you have the flag "Subseq. Shipping" set in this step.

      2.I change something in the properties of a substance - set the flag "relevant", save , generate a new version (version 2) of the sds for the substance..

      Make sure you release the new main version in the same language as you did send the MSDS during the manual shipping.

      3.In the day +1, I shoud find in CVD1 a new records of sending my sds version 2 to my customer, isn'it ?

      Yes ... 😭

      Other things to check in the customizing:

      Check if you have REASON = SUB_CALL configured in "Specify Shipping Reason".

      In "Assign Check and Subsequent Shipping Functions " make sure that you have for your customers ship to country the jurisdiction and the FMs:

      • Check function for MSDS distribution = CVEM_RDO_CHECK_EU
      • Subsequent Shipping Function = CVE8_RDO_SUBSEQ_REQ_CREATE

      If you happened to send it to an US customer no subsequent shipping will take place as the US rules are different....
