SAP Recycle Administration (REA)

SAP Recycle Administration (REA)

Recycling  Management  is  growing  ever  more  demanding. Legal requirements, coupled with an increasing awareness of the environment, have confronted modern enterprises with a completely  new  challenge.  In  Europe,  packaging  waste, disposed  batteries  and the Waste Electrical  and Electronic Equipment  (WEEE)  directives  requires  manufacturers  for the correct disposal and recycling of their waste products. To comply  with  these  directives  on  waste,  companies  must submit information on the products they bring into market to a  central  agency,  which  consolidates  the  data  for  local authorities.  Firms  that  operate  globally  must  account  for country-specific  differences  in  the  respective  directives, making compliance even more challenging.

Excerpts from the Paper
SAP Recycling Administration (REA)  helps  companies map the legal regulations of three EU directives and carry out the required quantity  flow  reporting  (declarations)  automatically  using  the information from the SAP ERP system in order to comply with  the regulations on packaging, battery disposal and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The SAP Recycling Administration application helps the enterprises  for smooth and automated reporting on their waste generation.  The application is a cross-industry solution and customers are manufacturers, importers and retailers. Recycling  Administration  is  a  component  of SAP  ERP  6.0 Enhancement Package 4  and  can  be implemented quickly.  The software implementation is hassle free as it does not hamper the production environment. Above all, it can also easily be enhanced to meet additional national requirements.
