Standards News GIPC Publishes Date Code Restrictions Guidance Document


ECIA’s GIPC has published a ‘Knowledge Document’ to clarify and recommend practices to improve efficiencies in the electronic component sales channel. The document is entitled, ‘Managing Date Code Restrictions on Orders for Electronic Components’ and is now available on the ECIA website. The knowledge document was prepared as the result of a cooperative effort between electronic component manufacturers and their authorized distributors. 

The document states that ECIA members, who are electronic component manufacturers, distributors and manufacturers’ representatives recommend that electronic component customers avoid the specification of general date code restrictions when ordering electronic components from electronic component manufacturers and their authorized distributors.
