Product Capabilities

Sanctioned party list (SPL) screening

Support sanctioned party list screening across sales, finance, HR, procurement, and distribution. If a transaction fails a check, the software blocks it for immediate review. Work lists enable efficient processing of blocked documents, and user-friendly workflows escalate questionable entries.

Export management

Connect with core logistics processes to help ensure compliant and efficient export management and support product classification, sanctioned party list screening, export license management and determination, embargo screening, and connect to multiple government customs systems through a certified interface.

Import management

Integrate with procurement and inbound logistics processes and support product classification, sanctioned party list screening, and permit and customs management. Carry out importer security filing (ISF) and connect to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Automated Broker Interface (ABI).


Real-time compliance checks

Enable real-time compliance checks and controls. Integration with order and shipment processes supported by SAP Business Suite helps you keep compliance-related data – and your products – moving as quickly as possible.

Support for special customs procedures

Meet customs requirements such as foreign trade zones, processing trade in China, bonded warehousing, settlement for inward processing and processing under customs control, Intrastat, and the Excise Movement and Control System (EMCS).

SAP Software Accessibility

SAP is committed to delivering software that is usable by individuals with disabilities. Although our applications include many accessibility features, they are currently not fully optimized for accessibility. You may need to provide client-side, third-party assistive technologies, such as the JAWS screen reader, to be used in conjunction with SAP products.
