German term or phrase: Bescheid für Kraftwerk auf den 1. November 1996
The 'auf' is the problem. Does this mean 'as at' or 'for' or 'on'? Some of the dates are in the future: auf den 3. Maerz 2001

Thanks. Unfortunately it is still pretty unclear what the guy is trying to say. 'By' just doesn't fit in the context somehow....
