Sometimes there is a need to specify for which markets a certain Vnr can be used. A Vnr can therefore be “unlocked” or “locked”.
||The Vnr can be used for the same article in any Nordic country, as long as the criteria for using the same Vnr in several countries are met.This means that the Vnr will automatically be allocated to a new country when a Vnr is applied for with the same article information.Unlocked is the default setting.|
||The Vnr can only be used in the specified country/countries.This means that a new Vnr will be allocated to a new country when a Vnr is applied for with the same article information.If a Vnr is locked and it is desired to use the locked Vnr in another country, the holder of the Vnr in the country/countries, where the Vnr is locked, must approve the usage in the additional country in advance.|
It is the responsibility of the company to specifically confirm that the unlocking in the original country/countries can be performed. When applying for a Vnr the applicant must select whether the Vnr should be unlocked or locked. Unlocked is the default setting.
