4.1.2: Physical location split

New GLN
Same GLN
Inactive GLN

When a physical location is split into multiple locations, one of the physical locations may retain the original GLN, as long as its access address stays the same and the location stays with the original legal entity.

Rationale

Since one of the original physical locations remains active, trading partners that continue to interact with that physical location do not need to be informed of the change.

Examples

A parcel of land belonging to farm A gets split into two parcels.
