We have just taken our product traceability to a whole new level

Traceability is becoming more and more important in our globalized market with complex flow of products.

It provides confidence in the purchase of authentic high quality products and services from proven suppliers. At Farnell, we only source from manufacturers or authorised distribution partners.

We can now provide date and lot codes on over 70,000 best-selling board level components across 10+ leading brands bringing the total count of products included in our date and lot code program to over 290,000 components across all major franchises.

We will continue to expand the number of brands and the number of products within each brand over time.
