New Scenario of SAP Product Stewardship Network (New)

You can now register for the Sustainability Assessment scenario of SAP Product Stewardship Network, which is based on content from The Sustainability Consortium, which you must purchase in order to use the scenario productively.

The other scenario, Compliance Declaration, is the scenario that had, until now, been the only scenario of SAP Product Stewardship Network.

In this release, the Sustainability Assessment scenario contains the following work centers:

Home: The Home work center consists of Welcome tab and the Inbox tab.

Welcome: Here you can find out more about SAP Product Stewardship Network for Sustainability Assessment, complete your registration on the SAP Store, and view information regarding product categories and questionnaires.

Inbox: Here you can view notifications regarding new activity on SAP Product Stewardship Network for Sustainability Assessment

Buy Side: This work center contains the Suppliers tab, which is the same as the Suppliers in the Suppliers & Components work center of the Compliance Declaration scenario.

This work center appears on the UI only if you have the role of Supplier Contact.

Sell Side: This work center contains the Customers tab, which is the same as the Customers tab in the Customers & Products work center of the Compliance Declaration scenario.

This work center appears on the UI only if you have the role of Customer Contact.

Network: This work center contains a list of all companies on SAP Product Stewardship Network. It is the same as the Network work center of the Compliance Declaration scenario.

Changes to the User Interface (Changed)

The following changes have been made to the UI:

The Internal Supplier Identification and Internal Customer Identification fields on connected companies’ profiles have been changed to Business Partner ID.

The Business Partner ID of each company now appears next to the company’s name in lists of companies.

The Components Work List tab for working with component declarations integrated with SAP EHS Management (for Enterprise users of the Compliance Declaration scenario only) has been added to the Suppliers & Components work center.

In the Create Product Declaration dialog box, the Publish unrestricted declaration now checkbox has been replaced by the Publish Unrestricted button. In addition, Save and Open is now the main button for saving, with Save and New and Save and Close available as related actions. This change applies only to the Compliance Declaration scenario.

Uploading Components from Your In-House Compliance Solution (New)

In the Compliance Declaration scenario, you can now upload components from your in-house compliance solution to SAP Product Stewardship Network to check whether declarations for these components already exist or have been requested. You can view uploaded components and request their declarations in the Components Work List tab of the Suppliers & Components work center.

Supplier and Customer Integration (New)

If you are using the Enterprise edition of SAP Product Stewardship Network and the Compliance Declaration scenario, you can import supplier and customer data from your in-house compliance solution using the Web service. Imported supplier data appears in the Pending Suppliers tab of the Suppliers tab of the Suppliers & Components work center. Imported customer data appears in the Pending Customers tab of the Customers tab of the Customers & Products work center.

Interfaces for Regulatory Content (New)

From your in-house compliance solution, you can now check SAP Product Stewardship Network for the current revision of either EU REACH SVHC, EU RoHS, or all regulations. This feature is available only if you are using the Enterprise edition of SAP Product Stewardship Network and the Compliance Declaration scenario.

Downloading Declarations in PDF Format (New)

If you are using the Professional or Enterprise edition of SAP Product Stewardship Network and the Compliance Declaration scenario, you can create a mass declaration request for multiple components from the same supplier.

Users with the Supplier Contact role have access to the Suppliers & Components work center in the Compliance Declaration scenario, or the Buy Side work center in the Sustainability Assessment scenario. Users with the Customer Contact role have access to the Customers & Products work center in the Compliance Declaration scenario, or the Sell Side work center in the Sustainability Assessment scenario.
