Hazardous material

Overview

Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management provides a set of useful tools that can help you manage hazardous materials in your inventory. These tools allow you to record and reference important product information, as well as design and print shipment documents that include relevant details about any hazardous materials that you’re shipping. However, it’s important to note that simply using these tools doesn’t guarantee full compliance with all applicable regulations in your country or region, although they are designed to help you comply with common regulations, they may not be sufficient on their own.

The shipping text for shipping documents will be drawn from this hazardous materials information for the released items. When you create a sales order that includes an item that is classified as a hazardous material, the system generates hazardous material documentation for that sales order when it’s shipped.
