If the name of a corporate body appearing in the chief source would require (according to 24.4B.) the addition of a qualifier while a variant form appearing elsewhere in the item would not require such a qualifier, nonetheless use in the heading the form found on the chief source.


Note that if one of the varying forms is in a copyright statement, it has second-class status in all situations, whether or not it or the competing form is on the chief source. This is because a form in the copyright statement, if it differs, is almost certainly an official form, the last choice under 24.2D.
