What is NOPI?

OK, so I'm always checking out breeder websites to see puppies...NOT getting another one, but I ran across this health testing info.

OFA Hips: HAV-1930F39M-NOPI
OFA Patellas: HAV-PA2584/39M/P-NOPI
OFA Elbows: HAV-EL998M39-NOPI
OFA Legg-Calve Perthes: HAV-LP806/39M-NOPI
OFA Cardiac: HAV-CA1466/39M/P-NOPI

What does NOPI mean? Is it something like a CHIC number?

PI = Permanent Identification (Microchip or Tattoo), VPI = Permenent ID verified by a veterinarian, and
NOPI means there is no permanent identification.

On the OFA page, there is a link to read all the codes here: http://offa.org/numberkey.html

I make sure all my puppies have permanent identification before I even take them in for their first vet exam and first health test (BAER), so there is no confusion over which pups had which results. I also insist that my vet and my testers verify the microchip matches the dog tested.
