  Abstract:  No matter what industry you are in, the adoption of Global Location Numbers (GLNs) compels the use of the GLN Registry to maximize the benefit of standardized location identification and to improve communication.

     2.    Explain what role the GPO plays in maintaining accurate GLNs.
     3.    Explain what role the facility plays in maintaining their own GLN and how to implement GLNs within their organization.
