Nope, nothing like that is available.
But as long as the discs are the "good ones" (NOT Value Series, NOT Life Series), then it honestly doesn't matter.
All Verbatim MCC/MKM media are produced at one of the Mitsubishi-owned or Mitsubishi-operated/inspected facilities. FTI owns the plant in UAE, but Mitsubishi is still the one making the media there. Moser Baur in India, CMC in Taiwan, Prodisc in Taiwan. Same for all locations -- Mitsubishi has a clear and definitive hand on what goes on with their own discs.
.. SPECULATION AHEAD...
I'm actually started to wonder if Verbatim/Mitsubishi isn't going to use Taiwan locations anymore. There had been some forum rumors that the Taiwan plants didn't quite have the MCC oversight they needed in the last year or so.
That could explain the surge in cheap CMC/Ritek media under the Verbatim name. The FTI plant is still going strong that I know of, as is India. I've not seen new "made in Taiwan" authentic MCC discs in a while now. Only the Value/Life stuff is Taiwanese.
Labor costs are going up in some of those Asian "orient" countries these days (GOOD FOR THEM, TOO!! -- And by default, the USA.)
Just some logical observations. It may be wrong.
I've not had time to make calls, emails and do some diligent research for about 3-4 months now, in terms of the business forecasting side of things.
