If one country is imposing/opposing to any other country or list of country, then that situation is called embargo in international trade.
For example: US expose to do import and export for Cuba, Syria. this is nothing, but these countries are embargo country for US.
(Sanctioned means restriction or prohibition.)
As a consultant we need to ensure while performing export or import, the Business partner countries (involving during export/import) should not belongs to embargo countries.
If we are creating any document for these country Business partner, then system should block the document automatically.
ECC Connection GTS Embargo List
Sales Order Customer RFC Custom Document BP 1.VE 2.CU 3.SY
Once we create one document in ECC system, then corresponding custom document will create in GTS System and in GTS system, system will check Business Partner record (country)
If, BP country belongs to Embargo country then system will block the document in GTS and send the same response to ECC and block the document.
If, BP country not belongs to Embargo country then system will not block the document in GTS and send the same response to ECC.
This block functionality transfer with help of “Note” which controls the copy control and transfer the information whether blocked or not in ECC once the particular document blocked in GTS.
There are 3 different way embargo screening can we carried forward i.e. we can maintain embargo situation based on below. If these scenarios/situations come system will block the document.
- Maintain country specific information (CU/VE/SY)
- Legal Regulation/Destination country (ZANS/CU)
- Legal Regulation/Departure country/Destination country (ZANS/US/CU)
Note: If all the 3 come for screening for a document, then system will perform based on most specific combination i.e. 3. Legal Regulation/Departure country/Destination country (ZANS/US/CU).
Configuration settings for Embargo:
In GTS: SPRO >> IMG >> Global trade Service >> Compliance Management >> Embargo Check
1.Define Reasoning for releasing blocked document and Business Partner:
This functionality will help to put the reason while releasing any blocked document.
Reason we are maintained in procedure and the same procedure need to assign the application area.
In GTS: SPRO >> IMG >> Global trade Service >> Compliance Management >> Define Reasoning for releasing blocked document and Business Partner
2.Assign Determination Procedure for Active legal regulation:
Here we are not creating any new legal regulation, this is came based on the legal regulation we created in general settings.
The procedure comes based on the application area assigned in legal regulation.
SPRO >> IMG >> Global trade Service >> Compliance Management >> Embargo Check >> Assign Determination Procedure for Active legal regulation:
3.Activate legal regulation:
SPRO >> IMG >> Global trade Service >> Compliance Management >> Embargo Check >> Activate legal regulation
Here we cannot activate any country.
Here the countries are coming based on general settings.
When we create legal regulation in general setting, in that level we are only display or activate the county, but we cannot tell system whether that activation is for import or export process.
But here (Activate legal regulation) we can tell the system whether the activation of country for import purpose or export purpose.
4.Control settings for Embargo check
SPRO >> IMG >> Global trade Service >> Compliance Management >> Embargo Check >> Control Settings for “Embargo Check” Service
Partner Group for Import:
Partner Group for Export:
We can define the partner group and assign here, so that system will consider only those partners while performing embargo.
Email when document: This will help to get mail if any custom document is blocked with reference to the legal regulation i.e. email notification will get.
Along with this we need to make setting in GTS Area menu >> System communication >> Notification control for block documents
Reason for Rejection:
Activation: Here we can tell the system what system should ask when user release and remove the block in custom document.
Schema: These are the reasons we can put while remove the block.
