5.2.1: Change to system purpose / scope of a digital location

Structural Rule

In case of minor changes, where the purpose of the digital location stays partially the same and the change will not affect ongoing business transactions, the GLN is allowed to stay the same. Digital location and purpose are intrinsically linked, and therefore a complete (major) change of the purpose of a digital location is not possible.


Trading partners that continue to interact with the digital location do not need to be informed of a change. To trading partners interacting with the digital location for the first time the GLN will be seen as new.
