Under ASiF, the Company has been recognizing as credit those charges which, within the License Regulatory Framework, may be passed through to its customers and which have been effectively recognized before, as stated in Note 8. Although the Company has met the requirements necessary for approval, there are delays from the various state organizations that participate in the tariff process to issue a resolution authorizing the effective invoicing of these amounts.
