Identification Types in Specifications.....


I was creating Specifications for UN list, DG Class, Pure and Real. (LS_UN_SUB, DG_CL_SUB, PURE_SUB, REAL_SUB)

While creating them in the header, we give the identifiers. My doubt is that what are the mandatory Identification Types for the above Specifications and what are they uses.

    Hi Sanjay,

    whatever you mentioned different type of substances - Real sub, pure sub, UN listed sub & DG classsification. there is no such rules to follow to maintian the specific identification types.

    You have to check with the business - how they are identifying their products.

    SAP has defined the ID categories in very clever manner - where we can identify the product either by Name, Number (or) formula.

    Usually CAS names and IUPAC names will be used for general chemicals.

    If business not interested to dealt with the above names, they can use the brand names, commercial product names, proper shipping names. some of them use directly the material description as well.

    these identifiers will be used further in the transport documents, labels and reports/ forms etc.,

    based on the usage, identifiers will be maintained.

    These Identifiers can be managed further, Regulation wise & Region wise.

    (You can find the symbols at the bottom of the Identifiers tab screen).

    So that you can restrict the data in the forms, while dealing with regulations and regions.

    you can find the example -
