      Change the existing text:  

      In some cases, the same code or identifier system might accidentally be created more than once in a registry, for example because someone failed to check for an existing entry before adding a new one or knows the same concept with a different name. If this occurs, one of the system entries should be deleted and the remaining entry should have its uniqueId updated to include any identifiers present on the original entry (and possibly have its descriptive information modified to include additional information from the duplicate entry).

      To this:

      In some cases, the same code or identifier system might accidentally be created more than once in a registry, for example because someone failed to check for an existing entry before adding a new one or if they didn't recognize that their addition replicates another. If this occurs, the system publisher should be contacted for guidance.

    Description

      The existing text:  

      In some cases, the same code or identifier system might accidentally be created more than once in a registry, for example because someone failed to check for an existing entry before adding a new one or knows the same concept with a different name.

      Is most likely outdated. Shouldn't the NamingSystem  that is the loser be retired or deprecated?  

      1st sentence has some awkward text that could be changed.

      In some cases, the same code or identifier system might accidentally be created more than once in a registry, for example because someone failed to check for an existing entry before adding a new one or if they didn't recognize that their addition is the same as another because the name is different.
