Dangerous Goods Management

Dangerous Goods: Overview

Whenever a company produces, sells, or transports a product, the company has to ensure that the product meets all regulations: laws, industry standards, and company standards.

With Dangerous Goods Management, you can assess unpackaged and packaged dangerous goods, classify them according to dangerous goods regulations, and decide whether transportation of a product is allowed, allowed with restrictions, or forbidden.

Dangerous Goods Management also provides classification data for checks in business documents in the value chain, such as stock transfer orders, sales orders, and delivery notes. The checks for transport permissions are carried out if dangerous goods are involved. If the transport of a dangerous good by a particular mode of transport is forbidden in a specific country or region, the transport must be prevented. If transport is possible only under certain restrictions, a warning appears. If transport is forbidden, or the dangerous goods classification has not yet been assessed, the business documents are blocked.
