EWM: Differences between Custodian, Party Entitled to Dispose and Owner

Here is a quick note that explains the differences between three similar definitions: Custodian, Owner and Party Entitled to Dispose.

  • Custodian: Owner of the Warehouse (has physical access to the materials).
  • Owner: Owner of the stock (Company that owns the stock).
  • Party Entitled to Dispose: It’s a Company, Organization or Plant that is entitled to dispose of stock. Usually, this is the plant in which the stocks are planned, and in which the ATP check is performed.
