Suitability – Add Exceptions Based on Application
Some clients may ‘ban’ an ingredient from being used in their products, except they allow it for specified applications. For example, they may ban ingredient ethanol from their products, except if the product will be used in an application of alcoholic drinks or fine fragrance.
You can reflect this situation in Suitability Management, using ‘Exceptions’.
As a summary the exceptions have to be exactly equivalent to the ‘parent’ suitability constraint apart from the exception, and the exception must be written for one item and one application. So, in the example where ethanol is banned, except for application of alcoholic drinks or fine fragrance, and assuming ethanol is relevant at regulatory composition, this means 3 suitability constraints need to be added as follows:
Suitability Constraint 1: Regulatory Item limit for Ethanol of 0 (this bans Ethanol for the client)
Suitability Constraint 2: Regulatory Item limit exception for Ethanol of 0 for Application alcoholic drinks (this makes an exception for alcoholic drinks)
Suitability Constraint 3: Regulatory Item limit exception for Ethanol of 0 for Application fine fragrance (this makes an exception for fine fragrance)

As with all Suitability Constraints, please check the result is as expected.
