Microsoft Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management provides various reports that are related to hazardous materials. Many of these reports are required so that you remain compliant with various hazardous material regulations during shipping and storage.

All these reports, except the Multimodal dangerous goods report, use the mode of delivery that is defined for the shipment to find the regulation that should be used to print the shipping text for items. The mode of delivery is associated with the shipping carrier and the carrier service. Therefore, you must set up a shipping carrier and carrier service, and link them to a mode of delivery. The mode of delivery is related to the hazardous materials regulation.

The following illustration shows the sequence of activities that occur when the system generates hazardous materials reports.

Hazardous materials report

The Hazardous materials report shows a list of all items that have been set up and defined so that they have dangerous goods information. You can use this report to monitor and review the information that you must maintain. The page for the report shows a limited selection of fields from the hazardous material setup. However, you can personalize it to add additional fields as you require.

To view this report, go to Product information management > Inquiries and reports > Hazardous material shipping documentation > Hazardous materials.

Hazardous material stock limit report

The Hazardous material stock limit report lets you monitor the stock levels of the hazardous materials in your warehouse locations, to make sure that they remain under established, safe limits. These limits come from the limits that are defined for each released product.

To view this report, go to Product information management > Inquiries and reports > Hazardous shipping documentation > Hazardous material stock limits.

For more information about how to set stock limits on a released product, see Set stock limits for hazardous products.

The regulation that is used for stock limits is defined on the Warehouse management parameters page. Go to Warehouse management > Setup > Warehouse management parameters, and then, on the Reports tab, in the Hazardous materials stock limit, specify a regulation code. For more information, see the Set up hazardous materials reporting section earlier in this topic.
