Safety Measures - Cylinders have Expiry Dates

Any one know if the following is true ?!

A piece of information...

There is an expiry date for LPG cylinders. Expired Cylinder is not safe for use and may cause accidents. In this regard please be cautious at the time of accepting any LPG cylinder from the vendor. Here is how we can check the expiry of LPG cylinders - On the stem of the cylinder the expiry date is coded alpha numerically as A or B or C or D and some two digit number following this. e.g. D06. The alphabets stand for quarters - A for March Qtr, B - June Qtr, C -Sept Qtr and D- December Qtr. The digits stand for the year till it is valid. Hence D04 would mean December qtr of 2004.

I am a bit confused - A is for March Qtr, B for June Qtr, C for Sept Qtr and D for Dec Qtr.
For example D04 means the Dec Qtr of 2004 - does that mean LPG cylinder expires in the month of Dec 2004? Should not be used w.e.f. January 2005??
