Are there spaces surrounding the '/' characters (there are in the example).

Simple regex to match that pattern:

^[A-Z]{4} / \d{4} / \d+$

If no spaces should be there, then this:
^[A-Z]{4}/\d{4}/\d+$

If the last section can be blank (zero or more digits) then you can replace the '+' with '*'

RegexBuddy says this should work in C#:

@"[A-Za-z]* / \d{4} / \d{1,}"
