Explanation:
There's a convention that if you double the final letter of an abbreviation it indicates a plural (as in pp. for pages)

could Alt. a. E. possibly be Alternative am Ende - perhaps an alternative version quoted at the end?

Was this written in German or is it already a translation? That endg. would make sense if it were gültig vom ... rather than endg. vom.
