Here's an example of a part (17836) that shows this text molded on the underside:

When did bricks start to have the LEGO Group text engraved on them?

And what was the first set to use these?

    Similar question but not a duplicate, this is specifically about when full "LEGO Group" text was first added. Nov 24, 2022 at 14:16

    Do you have examples of parts that have LEGO Group on them?

    I've reopened the question after adding a photo of the text that I believe @BernardVanderBeken is referring to. This doesn't look like a dupe to me if I've understood the question correctly.

It appears that this text was introduced sometime around 2010.

It's hard to determine a definitive answer here, because not all new parts include this text (nor even the LEGO logo). This is likely often due to space constraints, but there may be other considerations as well.

The 8x16 tile from 2004 does not have this text despite being large enough:

8x16 Tile

The 2006 2x3 tile with clips is also missing this text:


However, some variants of the 2x4 tile introduced in 2010 do have this:

2x4 Tile variants

So it appears to have been added around this time.

The 2x3 tiles introduced in 2016 also have this text.

2x3 tile
