Has anybody set up a scenario in SAP EHS where a material can be considered as a DG or not based on the quantity of the material in the packaging?
We have a scenario where some of our Articles can be DG or not based on the content of mercury inside the article and the total quantity of mercury within a packaging (in a Handling Unit). Does SAP EHS Dangerous Goods Mgmt support such cases?
Similar case: Lightly regulated DG or Fully regulated DG based on weight of the Lithium Battery inside an equipment.
Could you please elaborate a little bit on how exactly I can set up the DG master for a material which can be a DG or not based on the quantity in the Handling Unit? What would be the difference to a regular DG material.
And what exactly would the result of the DG check be? Would it be written somewhere in the Handling Unit whether it is a DG handling unit or not?
I will focus only on the high level topics to consider
1.) the "correct" answer depends on "your way of using" the material and "how" you pack it
2.) In the DG world we have a number of "exceptions" related to the "packaging" size (and similar topic); you will find some discussions regarding e.g. the "LQ" topic here
On top: it depends on the "use" case ... (e..g do you use SAP TM etc); do you "pack" e.g. in delivery or do you have "packed" materials etc.
One term/one option you should check is the so called "one Time / Template DG process" (please check SAP help)
Let us assume now this: the material, as used e.g. in sales order, is still "packed". In this case:
You have the REAL_SUB and the material is assigned to the REAL_SUB. On REAL_SUB level you have a "DG" classification; then; if there can be an "exception" because of DG perspective e.g. because of packaging size, then the same material is normally assigned once again on to a specific "DG_CL_SUB"; by using this approach this material will get a different DG master data
This process is as well explained in online help
For any other topic: sorry to say. This is (in most cases) a very specific customer topic and a solution can not be described using this EHS Forum (because of complexity)
PS: if you use the model (as listed above); then you need to have any doubt regarding the DG Check result: this is 100% SAP standard (from process point of view)
https://answers.sap.com/questions/687640/packaging-checks-in-dg.html (Question asked by you some time ago)
this is a normal legal demand; and yes it is possible to support (Check e.g. Holger's answer as well and generally EHS online help). BUT the specific solution depends on your business case.
There are two major options which can be listed. These options depends on the "material" model you use.
To be specific. it depends on the fact if you use "unpacked" and/or "packed" material
If you start only with an "unpacked" material you can only prepare "basic" DG data. The "real" DG data depends on the "packaging size" etc.
Now based on the fact how many kg you pack in one packaging (and other stuff) you can get a "non DG" material.
SAP SD deals with as: the packaging process is done on "delivery" step. So the final "DG" status can be only determined in "Delivery step"
If you have "packed" and "unpacked" material (and they describe the same chemistry) then the normal DG process can be used (in most cases).
Via REAL_SUB you can maintain "standard" DG data; and then via DG_CL_SUB you can "overwrite" the data for the material which (because of packaging) is now a "Non DG" one.
It is standard in EHS environment to consider these DG facts (called "exemptions" as e.g. LQ exemption and similar stuff)
it is SAP Standard. See this:
