To my knowledge they have no expiration dates. They come in opaque containers so that light can't break them down.

You can make your own F. Nitrogen, F. Phosphorus and F. Potassium using KNO3, KH2PO4 and K2SO4 respectfully. This will save you a lot of money. I just don't know where to get them in Cyprus. Here is a conversion for them:

F. Trace has such a tiny out of nutrients, it is not required.

In my opinion, Flourish, F. Iron, Excel and Equilibrium are very good but you can purchase other products and make your own.
Flourish - Plantex CSB+B or similar
F. Iron - Iron Chelate 10% or similar
Equilibrium - GH Booster
Excel - Glutaraldehyde

I never keep a bottle over a year and a half of any companies pre-mixed liquids just to be on the safe side tho the only Seachem liquid product I use anymore is Excel.

I've also switched to using ClorAm-X for my water conditioner as it's a dry powder, comes in 5lb bulk boxes and lasts 500x longer.
