Safety, environmental-friendliness and Compliance of Products are of increasing importance for business success. Regulators, corporate customers, retailers, nongovernmental organizations, and consumers, all expect safe and more eco-friendly products. Different regulatory environments and globalized supply chains increase product risks in terms of non-compliance. This makes it increasingly difficult for companies to grow the business with confidence in spite of product risks occurring when introducing new products or entering new markets. And it rises the workload of compliance departments and the need to share information with logistic departments and business Partners.
Helping ensure that products are safe and compliant helps mitigate product compliance risks while increasing customer satisfaction. This is even more imperative for innovative products that are sustainably made and tailored to customer needs. At the International SAP Conference on Environment, Health, and Safety Management in Amsterdam on June 24/25 you can learn more about how to deal with this challenge. Customers such as Wacker, Shell and Clariant will talk about their experience implementing and using SAP EHSM to standardize and harmonize the product safety & stewardship process.
Next to SAP EHSM cloud solutions from SAP can help to keep up to date with increasingly dynamic changes of regulatory requirements and how they can help to organize and execute the needed communication along the value chain. At the conference Dow Corning will show how they integrated a cloud-based service that delivers safety data Sheets and component classification in its Product Safety Stewardship Processes. And SAP will introduce and show a new cloud solution which is called cloud for product safety and stewardship that supportsfast compliance of products with changed or new requirements. There will be plenty of opportunity to exchange experience with other companies and experts from SAP in the breaks and during a roundtable discussion about how cloud solutions support product compliance processes. In a pre-conference workshop we also will discuss automation of Product Safety Processes and simplification of Product Compliance.
