Hazardous Material Records - SAP WM

To designate a material in your warehouse as dangerous, you must first create a hazardous material record and then assign it to the material master record of the dangerous material. When a material master record is linked to a hazardous material record and the hazardous material storage checks have been activated, characteristics defined in the hazardous material record are then taken into consideration for storage type and storage section search.

Information about the hazards of handling and storing materials is generally the same for specific classes of material, for example, types of chemicals. The hazard features may also be similar. You store the general information about the material class in a single hazardous material record. You can then use one hazardous material record by all materials that share the same properties and characteristics.
