Overview Substance Volume Tracking (4OL)
With the Substance Volume tracking (4OL) scope item, you can enable substance volume tracking of confirmed quantities from purchasing, manufacturing, and sales. Substance volume tracking helps you comply with chemical regulations. These regulations require you to track and monitor the volumes of regulated substances that you import into, produce, or export to a country or region within a certain period.
Substance volume tracking is integrated with the logistic processes for purchasing, manufacturing, and sales and tracks, calculates, aggregates, and monitors the imported, produced, and exported substance volumes that result from the processes.
The benefits of the Substance Volume tracking (4OL) app are as follows:
- Integration with the logistic processes of purchasing, manufacturing, and sales.
- Enablement of tracking, calculation, and aggregation of volumes of imported, produced, and exported substances on a legal entity level and based on the relevant compliance requirements and tracking period.
- Simplification of the comparison between the aggregated substance volumes and the thresholds in the relevant compliance requirements by calculating a substance volume tracking status.
- Support monitoring of substance volumes tracing back to the respective logistics document via an SAP Fiori app.
