living modified organism. is defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPB) as "Living modified organism" means any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology". The CPB uses the term LMO to distinguish living GMOs from non-living GMOs or GM products such as flour from GM maize, because the scope of the CPB is the protection of biodiversity. LMO-FFP's are "living modified organisms intended for direct use as food or feed, or for processing" (CPB, Article 11) which means they are not intended for cultivation. However, in practice such definitions can become blurry when for example grains of maize can be classified as LMO-FFP but still can be planted as seed even if that was not intended by the importeur.
