How to Ensure Supplier Compliance

Introduction: Supplier Compliance in the Value Chain

This process supports a check that is carried out in purchasing documents.

For each compliance-relevant product that is added to the purchasing document, the system checks the status of the supplier assessment.

If the supplier of all items is compliant, the document can be processed. If the supplier isn't approved for an item, the item and the business transaction are blocked.

For a blocked item, a compliance request for the product steward specialist is created to check the assessment of the supplier. If the compliance result of the assessment is positive, the block is released.

Task 2: Manage Basic Compliance Data

The Master Data Specialist - Product Compliance Jasmine checks if the compliance view for the raw material exists and assigns a product from the product master. Jasmine also assigns a supplier to the compliance view and requests the assessment of the supplier compliance.

Task 4: Create a purchase order

Purchaser Claire creates a purchase order for a raw material for which the assessment of the supplier compliance is still in progress. The system verifies the supplier compliance status and blocks the purchase order.

Task 5: Check supplier data

locked, a compliance request is generated. The Product Stewardship Specialist - Product Compliance Otto finds the created compliance request and checks the issue. Finally Otto approves the data.

Task 6: Control purchase data

finally Purchaser Claire checks the status of the purchasing order. The document is no longer blocked.
