French term or phrase: consommation
Hi all

The term consummation occurs several times throughout the text:

Les consommations remontées sur les produits variation et crédit sont elles aussi comparées à une autorisation globale.

La consommation remontée au niveau de chaque produit (allocation) est comparée à la limite correspondante (par défaut à 0).

Sur le découvert, la consommation en risque de l’allocation de découvert peut être soumise à trois types de limite: Une limite « maximale » de consommation, dont le franchissement, ne serait-ce que sur une journée, déclenche un dépassement

Is it "allocation"?

Thanks for your help.

This is admittedly a guess, but it seems to fit the context (the degree to which an authorised risk or exposure limit has been utilised).

neutral  Daryo: quite plausible, but guessing when the ST is about money (probably serious money) is not a good idea - far more context should be provided!
