VOC (Volitile Organic Compounds) Shipping Control and Restrictions?

VOC (Volitile Organic Compounds) Shipping Control and Restrictions - Is anyone dealing with how to control the sales/stock transfer shipments of VOC materials restricted by state and local municipalities? Depending on the VOC content percentage of materials, we are limited in some states across the country if we can ship into that municapility.

The goal is that we would like to utilize the product
classifications, product categories , and VOC assignments that are currently being maintained in ECC EH&S Hazardous Substance
Management to be analyzed by rules and based on where material is being shipped
to (customer /delivery address on po ) to determine if product can be shipped
there. If not, want to create a block.

Currently, we have to manage this today manually, which is not always accurate and very time consuming.

    SVT notification check could be used to solve this issue. The SVT notification check does not check against volume thresholds only it can also be used against notifications that are required for certain validity areas. Maintenance of notification information per substance and customizing of a SVT scenario for it are needed of course, to let the system perform the required checking.

    For more detailed information/discussion, please contact my colleague Marko Lange -

    • Milind,

      you have the discussed standard software components available for this purpose - SVT with its notification check add specDB with expert server - that you can use. But I have no implementation experience available how a solution configuration could look like. Maybe someonelse looking at this has? Would be of interest for chemicals community of course.

      Kind rgds

    Dear Cheryl

    VOC is discussed as well in SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management (SAP EHS Management)

    You need to pay attention with the term "VOC"; this term does have al ot of "subitems" and any of them is very specific. The solution companies looking for depend on their SAP landscape and set up and needs. PLesse check the FORUm mentioned
