Abstract: The TECHNICAL TOOLS AND GUIDANCE FOR THE DETECTION AND IDENTIFICATION OF LIVING MODIFIED ORGANISMS has been compiled by members of the NETWORK OF LABORATORIES FOR THE DETECTION AND IDENTIFICATION OF LIVING MODIFIED ORGANISMS as a tool toward the implementation of the Strategic Plan for the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety for the period 2011-2020 and in particular, in line with Operational Objectives 1.6, 1.8 and 2.3 of the Strategic Plan, addressing the issue of LMO detection and identification, as a tool to assist Parties in the detection and identification of LMOs in the context of the Protocol. The TECHNICAL TOOLS AND GUIDANCE addresses the following topics: (a) Overview of available detection methods, including validated methods; (b) Overview of available databases for methods and sequence information, and available screening matrixes; (c) Minimum performance criteria for sample handling, extraction, detection and identification methodology; (d) Experience and case-studies on detection and identification. Each of the topics addressed is enriched with online resources, representing a wide array of tools and guidance on the detection and identification of LMOs, proposed by the members of the Network during the online discussions organised by the CBD executive Secretariat. The introductory texts produced by the moderators and the resources submitted by the Network during the online discussions were compiled by the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity UNEP as “Technical Tools and Guidance for the Detection and Identification of LMOs” available through the BCH at http://bch.cbd.int/protocol/cpb_detection/toolsandguidance.shtml. The outcome was presented at the Seventh meeting of the CONFERENCE OF THE PARTIES TO THE CONVENTION ON BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY SERVING AS THE MEETING OF THE PARTIES TO THE CARTAGENA PROTOCOL ON BIOSAFETY (COP7) held in Pyeongchang, Republic of Korea, 29 September-3 October 2014.
