GS1, 2007) “In practice it is made up by one or more separate TU’s. ” (TraceFood, 2015) 2. 1 Which Units to Trace? ” GS11 (2007) divides the traceable units into (1) batch, (2) trade unit (TU), and (3) logistic unit (LU). 1. Olsen and Aschan (2010) described the relationship between batches, TUs, and LUs in one link in a supply chain. TUs and LUs are external traceable units and batch is an internal traceable unit. 2 Which Information Is Relevant to Trace? According to Storøy et al. ” “Transformation information” covers the identification of traceable units and of the transformation relationships that took place, and “product information” covers properties relating to origin, processing history, and location.

Transformations are points where the resources are mixed, transferred, added, and/ or split up (Derrick and Dillon, 2004). The relationship of the traceable units can be one-to-one, many-to-one, one-to-many, or many-to-many. 1 An international not-for-profit association designing and implementing global standards and solutions to improve supply chain management.

And its characteristics, eg, organic type of farm or a halal type of slaughtering). Quality-related issues in an EPCIS-based transparency system, eg, test on BSE of cadavers, use of antibiotics, and maximum temperature of a food item during an event can be handled as vendor extensions to events.
