SAP S/4HANA for Product Compliance: doubts with a Supplier compliance scenario

0 Kudos

Dear Community, 

Again, I'm in need of some help to clear some doubts that have been put forward by a customer, regarding supplier's compliance.

I'm implementing SAP S/4HANA for Product Compliance, on-prem, version 2023.


Customer buys the same Product to the same Supplier, to be delivered in two different plants located in two countries with different legal requirements:

  • Product A01, Supplier S01, for Plant in Portugal.
  • Product A01, Supplier S01, for Plant in Morocco.

Question 1: How can I assure Supplier's compliance, considering that SAP doesn't always provide (all) legal requirements for checks for a certain country and/or a region in a country (in the example above, SAP doesn't provide any of Morocco's legal requirements and for Spain, it just provides nation-wide requirements but not regional ones).

Question 2: In the case that I have all legal requirements for checks, is it enough to assess product marketability in each country and perform just one supplier's compliance check, regarding that I have created adequate compliance purposes (like one for each country)?

Thank you in advance.

@Paulo_Pinto Thanks for the questions, I will do my best to answer and provide documentation. 

The system allows you to create your own compliance requirement versions and package those together in a compliance purpose (for countries and regions). The system has model compliance purposes to help guide you. Additionally, with the Regulatory Content Service, we are continually adding new content.

For the system checks to proceed, the compliance view for the product also needs to be completed.

 Hopefully, others will add their expertise to fill-in the gaps for what I missed. I hope this helps a little.
