New 2018 expiry date format

MWE has revised its format for expiry date to be more readily understood by users.The new format complies with GS1 standards. The expiry date is shown as a 6 digit code in the order YYYY/MM, where YYYY is the year, MM is the month (from 01=January to 12=December). 

An expiry code of 2020/08 means an expiry date of 31st August, 2020.

Product with the previous date format

Product with the previous format remains in circulation. This used the format YYMMDD, where YY is the last 2 digits of the year, MM is the month as 2 digits (from 01=January to 12=December), and DD is the date as 2 digits (from 01 to 31).

For this format an expiry code of 180201 means an expiry date of 1st February, 2018.
