Customer Snapshot: Success Strategy
Staying Compliant in 70 Countries
INEOS Melamines did not have the expertise or technical resources to build up an in-house product safety department or SAP EH&S system. However, product compliance is essential for marketing their 200 different products in 70 countries. They knew that if the EHS processes could be managed by one provider, they would greatly diminish liability risk through improved product safety.
Enter SAP: The SAP Experience
Collaboration and Continuity
From its inception, INEOS Melamines was involved in developing and co-innovating the ERD portal solution with the SAP team. Close cooperation with SAP continued throughout the project and still continues since the go-live. SAP and INEOS Melamines strive for a long-term relationship, which is evident with regard to implementation and on-going services provided.

Wearing it Well
It’s a Big World, Inside and Out
INEOS Melamines will expand the geographical scope of this project to 108 countries with a goal to provide SDS coverage globally out of one system that is operated by SAP and provided as a cloud solution. In the near future, the solution will be introduced to the broader INEOS group. Although the companies in the group operate autonomously, the project success at Melamines may be an internal benchmark
INEOS Melamines has concrete ideas for improvement and will work closely with SAP to incorporate these into the SAP ERD services.
