2.1.2: Split of a legal entity

New GLN
Same GLN
Inactive GLN

When a legal entity is split into multiple ones, one of the legal entities may keep the existing GLN, provided that the company that keeps control over the GS1 Company Prefix or individually assigned GLNs. The other legal entities need to be assigned new GLNs.

Rationale

Since the original legal entity remains active, trading partners that continue to interact with that legal entity do not need to be informed of a change.
