The Conflict Mineral Law requires U.S. and certain foreign companies to report and make public the use of so-called “conflict minerals” from the Democratic Republic of the Congo or adjoining countries in their products. SAP AG will extend SAP® Product Stewardship Network to offer a solution focusing on the pressing needs around Conflict Minerals.
SAP Product Stewardship Network is a cloud solution connecting supply chain partners and providing exchange of structured information on product compliance and sustainability data. Manufacturers increasingly need this data to meet legal and customer requirements, like Conflict Minerals Regulations, RoHS and REACH or Sustainability Assessments. PSN is part of SAP’s Product Safety and Stewardship solution portfolio, which helps manufacturers innovate and grow with confidence. The end-to-end Process Integration between SAP Product Stewardship Network and SAP® EHS Management enables the customer to exchange key master data and compliance assessments.
With the planned enhancements to SAP® Product Stewardship Network, SAP will support the company’s specific data management, analyzing and reporting needs to handle conflict mineral obligations. In order to meet the customer requirements, SAP is currently co-innovating with leading manufacturers to productize these enhancements in standard EHSM and SAP Product Stewardship Network. SAP plans to extend SAP Product Stewardship Network with Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (RCOI) survey management, key risk analysis capabilities and export data efficiencies for further analysis as well as internal processing to support due diligence.
With SAP, customers receive a holistic solution to solve their EHS compliance and conflict minerals challenges. Existing SAP customers benefit from the integration with other SAP applications, which supports them in the exchange of key master data. SAP® Product Stewardship Network will help the customers to comply with existing and upcoming conflict minerals regulations across the entire supply chain.
