Integrated Content and Capabilities for SAP EHS and S/4HANA for Product Compliance

You are here

How can you ensure product safety, marketability and sustainability with 3E and SAP’s innovative pathway for product compliance? 

As product stewards struggle under the burden of complex market-specific regulations, exacting industry standards and increased consumer scrutiny, the need for regulatory intelligence has never been more critical. Without the ability to check for compliance early and often in the product development lifecycle, teams run the risk of having to rework formulations containing banned or restricted substances or, worse, recall products if they don’t meet regulatory obligations or customer requirements.  

How can 3E help you? By partnering with SAP to embed regulatory content into SAP S/HANA® for product compliance, we have a streamlined pathway to help protect your bottom line, increase transparency to meet customer demands and protect brand reputation.
