SAP EHS Management for Beginners

Introduction
It seems to be that it is time to have a document in place for beginners in SAP EHS Management. This
FORUM has showed that there is a regular need to support beginners. On High Level the most important Tipps
and Tricks or Information should be collected and published. On regular basis this document will be updated.
Please check as well on regular basis the FORUM SAP for Chemicals
You will find there a lot of helpful information as well. On top check: Sustainability & CSR
and take a look as well here: Product Compliance

Introduction / Career
On regular basis questions regarding how to start an EHS/EHSM career are coming up. Please use the
"search" option in SCN to find threads regarding this topic or check the SCN Career platform. If you just
"google" you will find a lot of job opportunities on functional, technical or manager level.

Please check for Career options: Career Center


You will find a lot of similar threads e.g.
SAP EHS Functional Consultant Role
What career in working as ABAP developer in EHS module?
SAP-EHS for Safety Officer (Oil&Gas) with BSc.Computer Science graduation
SAP GDC Hiring for SAP EHS Consultants - Bangalore Location
Need Expert Advise

ATTENTION: A NEW SECTION WAS ADDED.


You will find additional links (EHS training,
how to start EHS career). PLEASE CHECK !
As SAP HANA is as well a suitable approach which will be used more and more by SAP customers: a number
of documents in context of use of EHS/HANA can be found using an inquiry in SCN; some of them have been
now added in the document list. It can be expected that SAP will invest a lot of money and time to enable EHS
to be used in SAP HANA context; SAP ERP 6.0 EnhPack 6 is released to be used with SAP HANA).

SAP EHS Management for Beginners

Currently there is a high interest in


"Component Extension for SAP EHS
Management". This product is/has been
enhanced in the last years a lot and SAP is
using this new platform to reorganize old
solutions which are still available as well.
S/4 HANA
SAP goes on with the generation of new solutions and with a consolidation of solutions. S/4 HANA will be the
successor solution of SAP ERP / SAP Business Suite etc. Pay attention:
EHS Waste is NOT supported in S/4 HANA ==> NO SUCCESSOR SOLUTION AVAILABLE
EHS IH is NOT supported in S/4 HANA (you must switch to EHSM)
EHS OH is NOT suported in S/4 HANA ==> NO SUCCESSOR SOLUTION AVAILABLE
You willl find very helpful OSS notes and other documentaiton on this in SAP marketplace. Some discussion
regarding this is still running in this FORUM. We need to wait now how SAP will consolidate the existing SAP
EHS solutions in S/4 HANA.

Training/Certification
Trainings are offered e.g. by SAP or by other providers (please check e.g. https://training.sap.com/
v2/course/sus310-sap-ehs-management---essentials-and-functions-eef-classroom-096-de-de/)
There is no certification available regarding SAP EHS Management

SAP Marketplace
SAP EHS Management can be found easily in SAP marketplace. You can search for OSS Notes, try to
understand differences between different SAP releases (e.g. based on different support package etc.) and try
to understand the use of Business Functions in SAP EHS Management. Most important are OSS notes of type
"Consulting", "Additional Information" or which deals with upgrades/updates.
Be aware of the fact that depending on the license you have SAP EHS Management contains "more" or "less"
software (please refer to discussion as part of this document).
There are some "must to read" OSS notes available regarding e.g.
1. WWI Cookbook/WWI Setup
2. Report distribution
3. SVT installation
4. Component Extension for SAP EHS Management (Installation/Migration topics etc.)

Regarding some other stuff you will not find suitable consulting OSS notes (e.g. DG related topics etc.).

SAP Licence model


SAP EHS Management is part of SAP ERP (if we talk about EHS classic). To understand the SAP license
model is not easy. Therefore use your SAP contacts for help to get better understanding. E.g. Component
Extension for SAP EHS Management is still an "add on" to SAP ERP. But this is only the "technical point of
view". The license perspective can be different. PAY ATTENTION: SAP is going on to align the current license
strategy taking into account future enhancements of the software solution (software solution bundle).

Overview about SAP EHS Management


solutions
If you check this link: SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management (SAP EHS Management) SAP Help
Portal Page
SAP defines the solution as:
SAP Environment, Health, and Safety Management (SAP EHS Management)
having these subcomponents or solution options:
Component Extension 6.0 for SAP EHS Management
Mobile Apps for SAP EHS Management
SAP Environmental Compliance 3.0
SAP Product and REACH Compliance 2.0
SAP EHS Management as Part of SAP ERP
SAP EHS Regulatory Content
SAP Product Stewardship Network
SAP EHS Regulatory Documentation OnDemand
SAP Energy and Environmental Intelligence 1.0, Powered by SAP HANA

Discussions in many threads etc. has shown that this structure is not well understood. On top the community
does have problems in differentiating "license topic" (how to get the software) and SAP software set up (which
software must be downloaded, installed etc.)
Most of the threads in this FORUM are related to these topics:
Topic

Remark

SAP EHS Management as Part of SAP ERP

This is "EHS MANAGEMENT CORE"

Component Extension 6.0 for SAP EHS


Management

This is a new solution bundle having some


"solution" parts with an overlap with solution in EHS
Management Core

SAP Environmental Compliance 3.0

A number of threads regarding this topic can be found


as well but clearly on lower level in comparison to the
other ones

SAP Product and REACH Compliance 2.0

Is as well discussed. This solution bundle does


have now some solution overlap with "Component
Extension" solution

Many persons acting in this FORUM asking to get a "functional overview" regarding these solutions especially
focusing on the differences between the solutions but as well on the overlaps existing to get a better picture

high level difference is obvious. But for some other topics you need to drill down more in SAP Online help.

SAP EHS Management Core


SAP EHS Management is implemented as a SAP Extension in SAP ERP solution from technical point of view
and therefore you need to prepare SAP ERP system and activate the extension before you can use SAP
EHS Management. And there is some "afterwork" to be done to start with EHS. On SAP marketplace there
exists some OSS notes referring to this topic (e.g.: EH&S installation: Composite SAP Note or more
special: Composite SAP Note: Relevant notes for EHS dangerous goods ). After activation and if you use
recent SAP release (actually SAP ERP 6.0, Enhancement Package 7) you can activate further EHS relevant
business functions. Not in all cases SAP is delivering here "default" implementations regarding the extensions
as part of the Business Functions. During some upgrade projects (which have been mentioned here) e.g.
issues come up in e.g. Dangerous Goods integration. So you should read carefully anything which you find
on SAP marketplace. In context of "Component Extension for SAP EHS Management" you will find lots of
information in SAP marketplace (e.g. master guide to install the software; migration aspects etc.).

SAP EHS Management


There is no version number used in context of SAP EHS Management any more. It is part of SAP ERP. But
there is some "conflict" with naming convention by SAP. Now SAP delivers as well a "Component Extension
6.0 for SAP EHS Management" (currently: roughly any year a new version is delivered by SAP) which does
have actually a version number but is not the same as SAP EHS Management classic. As mentioned above:
This solution is to my knowledge not part of SAP ERP but installed as an "add-on". We can expect that may be
SAP will change this in the future (as has been done with EHS classic).

SAP EHS Management for Beginners

Component Extension is sometimes abbreviated as "EHSM" sometimes SAP EHS Management is called
"EHSM".
From technical point of view: you can not compare the old SAP EHS Management classic solution with the
Component Extension for SAP EHS Management solution.
On the top there is still a version number used in context of the "SAP Product and REACH Compliance"
solution (actually version 2.0 is the recent/current one).
v what will happen with the SAP Product and REACH Compliance Suite on long term; but it can be expected
that this solution will be mapped (may be) to Component Extension Solution if time goes on.

NEWS NEWS NEWS


It seems to be that there will be a new book to come and in english ! "Incident Management with SAP
EHS Management". According to the link identified: you can now ! dowbload the book. Please check: ISBN
978-1-4932-1330-6

SAP Best Practices for Chemicals


The use of the SAP Best Practise approach as shown here: http://help.sap.com/bp-chem can help to speed up
if there is the need to prepare a "general" set up regarding SAP EHS Management.
The topic of "Best Practise" is mentioned often together with links to the documents. So please check
this FORUM. Keep this in mind: not for all of the SAP EHS solutions you will find a "Best Practise" and in
most cases the Best Practise approach is only providing you an idea: how to do the job; in most cases the
discussion of gaps etc. can take lot of time.
KEEP IN MIND: SAP is not delivering e.g. WWI templates for MSDS/SDS or other similar stuff (you get some
examples). You have to do the job by your own (same for rule sets and a lot of similar stuff);
KEEP IN MIND: using SAP EHS software the system is nearly "empty" (ok: some basic customizing exists if
you have done set up properly); therefore establishing phrases and other important business content must be
done by YOU !!
PLEASE CHECK LINK: What is the main difference between product reach compliance and product safety
stewardship
PLEASE SEARCH FOR (using e.g. google) E.G. using term "SAP Best Practices for Environment, Health and
Safety Management", with "Solution Scope Document".

What is new in SAP ERP

SAP EHS Management for Beginners

The "management story"


Recently a number of documents has
been generated which are dedicated for
"Management purposes"
Just check: Strategic Imperatives for the Chemical Industry Part 9: IT Strategy, Alignment & Delivery

You will find reference to additional documents

"Naming conflict"/"History"
Years ago there was a different term used in this context: "EH&S". Generally you should now always use the
term "SAP EHS Management" and you should not use the term EH&S any more. But you need take care
regarding this "naming". In most cases: if term EHSM is used then you can think about: classic EHS together
with Component Extension. But sometimes people use the term EHSM for the "Component Extension" part of
the software solution. If EHS is used most of the people talk about EHS classic (refer to comments/discussion
in this document). Sometimes "problematic" is the discussion how "SAP Product and REACh Compliance
Suite" is related to that. Here we have in most case two perspectives: topic and status of your SAP license and
topic of software architecture etc. As SAP is still adapting/improving their license model no clear answer might
be possible. Therefore: make it simple. Just ask SAP about your status and how to extend (if needed). From
software point of view: "SAP Product and REACh Compliance Suite": this is an own software layer (on the top)
to SAP EHS Management classic. And there is a trend to move functionality from SAP Product and REACh
Compliance Suite into the new "Component Extension" solution. Currently roughly any 12 - 18 month a new
"Enhancement Package" is delivered by SAP to add new functionality to SAP ERP.

History of SAP EHS Management


SAP EHS Management is now part of SAP ERP as an extension. In former times SAP EH&S (name used in
the past) has been developed by TechniData and was implemented as an "add on". Here a short list of history

Use of SAP EHS Management


SAP EHS Management is integrated very well in the relevant SAP ERP processes. Normally it is not used as a

SAP EHS Management for Beginners

SAP EHS Management classic uses as well the SAP class/characteristic system. By using this you can "easily"
enhance EHS to maintain additional data which is not possible by using SAP standard. Keep in mind that SAP
delivers update to SAP Standard property tree sometimes (please check SAP marketplace; you will find an
important OSS note regarding this (Standard property tree)). If you are owning a SAP Regulatory Content
license you will get these updates "nearly" automatic.
For those who would like to start with SAP EHS Management especially these modules are of importance
and therefore you should invest some time to understand the use of them and the relation to SAP EHS
Management:
1. SAP MM (definition of the material master, assignment of material to specification; use of material
classes)
2. SAP SD (basic know how needed because of e.g. SDS/MSDS distribution and Dangerous Goods
Management integration)
3. SAP DMS (basic know how needed to understand how e.g. WWI reports are managed (stored) in
SAP; it is recommended that you should have basic know how in the area of "ArchiveLink" and similar
solutions

What the "hell" is a specification (and what


about specification type and specification
category)?
For those who start with EHS classic it is not easy to differentiate these terms. Think of a specification
of a "number" (but need not to be number) for an object in EHS classic. SAP provides a number of SAP
transactions in EHS. Therefore on the topic you might have some problems in understanding the difference.
The topic of specification category is explained here:
Specification Category - Basic Data and Tools (EHS-BD) - SAP Library
and that of the specification type here:
http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_07/helpdata/en/4d/936efaed6834b7e10000000a42189c/content.htm?
frameset=/en/c1/eda0f591ec12408b25e7a1b369ca45/frameset.htm

Hazardous/dangerous -- what is the


difference?
If you read cross chemical legislation/regulations you will find the term "Hazardous" and "Dangerous". These
two terms are sometimes mixed. On high level this is true:
If people talk about "hazardous substances/materials" they are interested in topics as:
SDS/MSDS generation
SVT
Hazardous Substance Management (e.g. what is allowed to be stored together)
SOP generation
Handling/Storage advices
Labeling
etc.

If people talk about "dangerous substances/dangerous goods management/dangerous materials" they are
interested in topics as
how to transport the product safe
in which region (e.g. regulations like IMDG, IATA, ADR, ADNR etc.) should the transport happen and
what is the "mode of transport"
what can be transported together
In which kind of "package" is the transport allowed
etc.

Hazardous Substance Management


Currently there is a high frequency of threads to be detected in the area of "Hazardous Substance
Management". I am sorry to say that one could write books regarding this topic. I can only try to give some may
be helpful hints.
There is a kind of overlap in "understanding" and "use" of this term with SAP EHS IHS
There is a functional overlap with Component Extension for SAP EHS Management
and there still exists in SAP ERP an "old" solution; according to the analysis here: nobody seems
to use this solution any more (there is nearly no thread): some rare examples: Hazardous material
not maintained in Region, Hazardous material URGENT, Hazardous Materials Management Warehouse Management System (WMS) - SAP Library

Generated by Jive on 2016-09-07Z

SAP EHS Management for Beginners


There is an integration option available with SAP eWM (topic of what is allowed to be stored together
in a "location")

If you check carefully the optons delivered with "Component Extension" Solution the story is now getting
"complexer" as we have now a kind of functional overlap.

Dangerous Goods Management


The "Dangerous Goods management" solution does have a long history. By using Enhancement Packages on
top of ECC 6.0 there are now a lot of new options available. E.g. using recent SAP releases you can integrate
SAP EHS DG as well with SAP TM.

Substance Volume Tracking


For those who might be interested: for any company doing business in Korea a "REACh" like regulation is now
in place. Take a look here: Korean REACH passed on April 30th
It can be expected that in Asia more regulation will come in place which are REACh like. So there might be the
need so set proper SVT scenario for the new countries. E.g. take a look here: Korean Reach compliance

GHS
In more and more countries the GHS principle is used. This does have impact on e.g. WWI layout, rulesets and
other topics as well. Most of the regulations create "lists" (e.g. europe) in whicht the GHS classifcation/labeling
is fixed for a specific chemistry. Therefore the topic of content handling is important as well.

A lot of discussion can be listed in context of "mass update", "upload options". Because of the many SAP
solutions; let us concentrate on EHS classic.
On very high level you might differentiate:
Set up of a new SAP ERP system (and EHS classic) using data from a legacy system
Doing mass updates in the EHS system of any kind (insert, update, delete)
Options to extract data from SAP ERP system

Any of these topics are addressed in many threads in this FORUM (and some links to threads are provided as
well). Therefore: please check this document and the many threads.
It is always a good practise to consider as well "documents" in your scope. Here more or less the option to
"import" documents or "export" is of interest; but sometimes as well there is the need to generate by mass new
documents in EHS classic based on new data. Here as well you will find lot of references in this document and
in this FORUM.
In most cases the demand is such specific, that you will in most cases use a company specific approach.

Topic of Enhancement Package

Data / Document archiving


This topic is discussed rarely. The story is quite simple. SAP delivers a standard strategy to "archive"
documents but not the data. So if you use EHS for a long term (> 3 years) and based on your company size
etc. the number of data records in the EHS core tables can increase "dramatically". There is only one option to
delete "old" data but you can not archive this data (based on what SAP delivers).

As you can see: the link is different and the solution approach is different. Both applications use SAP EHS core
elements as well.

Component Extension for SAP EHS


Management
Component Extension for SAP EHS Management is a "new" solution (now available as version 6.0). It is an
"Add On" (own software layer). This new solution can not be compared with SAP EHS Management "classic"
and is implemented different. The actual scope of the application does have some overlap with SAP EHS
Management "classic". To a certain extent part of SAP EHS Management "classic" can be used if you start
with the Component Extension (you can "migrate" existing data). Discussion in several threads in this FORUM
showed that SAP will "reorganize" their applications. Therefore some old functions will not be developped any
more but money / time etc. will be invested in the Component Extension. Please check carefully this FORUM.
A number of useful hints are provided regarding installation of the new solution, migration topics etc.
E.g. check: SAP EHS DISCUSSIONS !!!!: SAP EHS and SAP EHSM – Where to start learning

GLM/Global Label Management


Discussion in this FORUM showed that SAP is restructuring and enhancing the GLM solution as well.
Last update has been done with Enhancement Package 7. Some old TechniData solutions seems to be
still supported by SAP using the SAP Consulting service. Especially the new options regrading GLM in
Enhancement Package 7 are worth to be studied if you need to implement GLM. Especially the topic "how to
install WWI correct" is a "problem" in this context. Because of recent dicussions in this FORUM some links
to "Bar Code" discussion taking place in this FORUM has been added. GLM is as well one of those topics
discussed very often in this FORUM.

SAP EHS Management for Beginners

MSDS/SDS/XML
On an irregular level discussion is coming up if it is possible to "convert" a WWI related MSDS/SDS into
XML for data exchange. To make it short: there are options to do so but there is lack of availability of XML
schemata. Here I have the feeling that people believe XML is something like "TXT", "DOC", "PDF" etc. To a
certain extent this is correct but in context of MSDS/SDS and data exchange this is wrong. The main "issue"
here is: data exchange can be only done if sender and receiver talk the same language. Examples of data
interchange options via XML is the "IUCLID" format. Here you need to prepare a XML data stream according
to the rules of ECHA. And this is the "crucial" issue in exchange of data using XML. The XML file content
must "fit" a XML schema. (there is a "rule" to do so). But there is a trend on chemistry / legislation etc. to use
XML as the "data format (but per "legislation" there is a different rule in place) and clearly if you look close on
SAP functionality you can generate XML (there are a number of options to do so). But e.g. if you would like
to exchange an US related MSDS or an European MSDS via XML you have a different internal structure etc.
Here we have now to a certain extent the link to WWI. WWI is used to "collect" together the data for US MSDS
and EU MSDS. Using XML in theory you can do the same but because of lack of "common" rules (as with the
IUCLID format) you can not use XML generally to exchange MSDS/SDS data. In most cases you need to think
about "mapping" of XML Data stream to your EHS structure (may be you use different phrases, identifiers etc.
etc.).

WWI / Adobe Forms


In some SAP EHS Management related software Adobe Forms are used (Example SAP Product and REACh
Compliance Suite). For SDS/MSDS/Label etc. reports WWI is and will be the standard tool. It can be assumed
that Adobe Forms will be integrated "better" in the future and that it will be used more often but if a complex
layout has to be designed WWI is the only available tool to do so especially in the area of Label Management.

Portal solutions/MSDS download and related


stuff
On regular basis discussion is coming up regarding:
MSDS import
MSDS export
MSDS display in portal

PLEASE CHECK THIS FORUM first or check this document. The topic has been discussed really often.
Dear EHS Community: please go on in preparing documents and blogs !
Any idea to improve this section is appreciated. Please provide ideas regarding topic or subtopic so
that may be beginner can find more easily the answer.

Please help to improve so that Beginners in SAP EHS Management are supported. What do you
Beginner in SAP EHS Management need as a "starter package"?

Frequently Asked Questions


This section is intended to help beginners to find easily a thread in this FORUM which might help regarding the
issue. This section will grow step by step. Ideas of topics which should be collected can be added based on
feedback of community.
The "WWI" section part of this FAQ will be updated only rarely. The same is true for "GLM" part. There
are too many threads regarding this tool/technique. It is nearly not possible to do a "sorting" or to
select properly may be helpful threads. Please refer to some of the documents as mentioned here.
They try to help more.
The same is true regarding Report distribution, Component Extension for SAP EHS Management as
well as Dangerous Goods Management topics etc. It is not easy to sort questions asked so that it might
help a SAP EHS beginner.
This is my personal list of those topics which are asked for very often:
WWI (layout topics, server installation) (it is nearly impossible to take care about that many threads
regarding this tool/this solution in this FORUM; therefore: please search first ! and then ask your
question)
How to use WWI to define e.g. MSDS/SDS layout (what are the basic steps)
MSDS generation (e.g. what are the steps required etc.) (e.g. SAP EHS DISCUSSIONS !!!!: WWI
Template Creation and (M)SDS Authoring)
Report distribution (e.g. general set up; distribution of inbound documents)
Report import/export (Most frequently asked are: Import: Inbound documents; Export: Mass download
topics)
Label/GLM topics of many kind (A lot of topics regarding GLM (e.g. label scenario); GLM Bar Code
printing (how to use BAR codes etc.) ; synchronous WWI server
Dangerous Goods (filling, checks and to a certain extent maintenance topics)
CG02 extensions (e.g. use of output variants)
Where used list (compositions, specification listings)
CG50/CG54 (e.g. download by mass of documents, portal solutions)
