  1. Login to E-Business Suite (EBS)
  2. Open the notification Worklist
  3. Open a notification for "Approval Required : RFQ..."
  4. On the notification click the Review link, and get the error


1. Set MO: Operating Unit (OU) at site level: Argentina
2. Set OU at Responsibility level to Brazil
3. Select the Brazil responsibility (make sure to open the responsibility first) go to Notifications and open it.

This works without error. But if the user opens the notification in the Worklist, without selecting any responsibility, the error is shown.
