Title: Transponder identification and record assembly

Abstract: Transponder identification record assembly is suitable for associating an identification code with a code recipient and for maintaining an independent record of the identification code associated with the code recipient. The assembly includes a carrier element, a patch, and a data record. The patch is releasably disposed on the carrier element and is further provided with an adhesive coating so that the patch is adherable to the code recipient after the patch is removed from the carrier element. The patch also includes a transponder which stores information such as an identification code. The transponder can be remotely interrogated to obtain the identification code. The data record is disposed on the carrier element separate from the patch. The data record includes at least a copy of the identification code such that, after the patch is removed from the carrier element and adhered to the code recipient, the carrier element bearing the data record can be separately stored. The separately stored carrier element thereby provides a tangible separate record of the identification code associated with the code recipient. The information may be transferred to and stored in a database.
