All Thames & Kosmos products include a twelve digit alpha-numeric tracking code. This tracking code indicates three key details:

The Production Number (batch code);
Location of Manufacture;
Date of Manufacture.

As an example, let's look at tracking code P637 L42 D3215:

Production Number:
The number which follows the letter P corresponds with the specific Production or batch. In this case, Production #637.

Location Code:
The two-digit code following the letter “L” identifies the factory where the product was produced. In this case, #42 correlates with one specific factory location in Taiwan.

Date Code:
The numbers which follow the letter “D” indicate the two-digit ISO week number and the two-digit year in which the product was manufactured. In this case: 3215 indicates that production was completed on the 32nd week of 2015; or the week of August 3rd to August 8th.
