Identity preservation:

Forwarding the identity of a GMO along with the GMO and subsequent products

Identity preservation is an important measure for traceability: every product which is a genetically modified organism, or which contains genetically modified ingredients, must be accompanied by documents detailing the identity of this GMO during the whole production chain. For this purpose, the OECD introduced a naming system called Unique Identifiers. In case a GMO must be withdrawn from the market, identity preservation allows authorities to trace all shipments up to the food stores.
