5.3.2: GLNs of digital locations being merged

New GLN
Same GLN
Inactive GLN

In cases where two or more digital locations are merged, one of the existing GLNs may be retained to identify the whole digital location. The other, now unused GLNs, must be deactivated.

Rationale

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

Examples

The Accounts payable (A/P) system function is taken over by the ERP system.
