(c) When an unincorporated business is changed to a partnership, or when a partnership changes members.

In the above cases, where the business is to be continued, but under a different form of ownership (under heading b and c) a new application must be made, and a new permit or certificate of authority will be issued.

The original permit or certificate of authority will be continued, but must be corrected in the following cases:
