Fight the fakes: OSRAM expands Trust Programme

Published:  24 June, 2020

OSRAM has expanded its Trust Programme to aid in the fight against counterfeit parts in the aftermarket.

OSRAM is urging garages to ensure they are purchasing from credible sources as the sector has seen a surge of unreliable counterfeit HID and HAL bulbs.

The Trust Programme provides a solution to fight against counterfeit products by merging a unique bulb ID with a unique packaging ID. It has now been extended to include Halogen upgrade bulbs packed in their DUO BOX packaging. The programme for HID (Xenon) bulbs was first introduced in October 2015 and was extended to include Halogen upgrade DUO BOXED bulbs in December 2019.

The online tool enables buyers to check and differentiate HID and Halogen OSRAM originals from HID and Halogen counterfeits.

Simply go to and enter the 7-digit label code from the packaging and then enter the captcha code shown. After the label code has been verified, the automatically prompted bulb data needs to be checked. It must match the data displayed on the base of the HID (Xenon) bulb/s or the data displayed on the Halogen DUO BOX.
