Identification is realtively simple in PLS. PLS models are theoretically identified if each construt is connected to at least one other construct. If you have a higher-order construct it means that your higher-order construct needs to be connected to at least one other construct which is not one of its own lower-order constructs.
Empirically, PLS models are identified if they have at least one non-zero relationship to another construct.
