Batch status has to be activated in config.

Logistics-General > Batch management>Specify Batch Level and Activate Status Management.

Batch status when used allows you to restrict the batch via the MSC2n screen and in some other ways, (via QM inspection lots).

Batch status is different from inventory quantites or buckets. If a batch exists in multiple plants and in multiple stock categories, (i.e. some in blocked, some in unrrestricted), it doesn't care. If you set the the status as restricted in MSC2n ALL the material will show in restricted inventory. Restrcited stock cannot be sold but can be moved via stock transport orders and can be selected for consumption on rework orders.

So if you get a complaint about a batch, you can immediately restrict the batch, this locks it down at all plants/warehouses/distribution centers. (Unless your at the plant level batch, which few clients are usually on.). The batch can then be investigated and if need stock transported back to a plant for rework or disposal.
