2.2.3: Relocation of a legal entity

New GLN
Same GLN
Inactive GLN

When a legal entity relocates to a different address the GLN of the legal entity may remain the same.

Rationale

An address change of a legal entity is an administrative change without major business consequences. Changing the GLN of a legal entity would disrupt to a lot of processes and systems.

Notes

If as a result of the relocation the legal framework of the company changes, a new GLN may be required. See rule 2.2.1.
