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

You are here


How can you ensure product safety, compliance and marketability worldwide?

As companies struggle under the burden of complex market-specific regulations, exacting industry standards and increased consumer scrutiny, access to comprehensive regulatory, product and substance content has never been more critical. Without the ability to check for regulatory compliance early 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. 

Accelerate the development and launch of safe, compliant products with access to value added regulatory content within SAP

To help you overcome these challenges 3E™ offers 3E ERC – formerly SAP® EHS Regulatory Content (SAP ERC). 3E ERC can empower your team with access to value added global substance lists and reference data, multilingual phrase libraries, expert rules for substance and mixture classification and Safety Data Sheet (SDS) templates within SAP EHS and SAP S/4HANA® for product compliance.

3E ERC enables you to intelligently manage product compliance across the enterprise and throughout the product lifecycle.
