    Default confusing sentence

    Hi...how would you translate the following sentence...

    "Año de fabricación no debe exceder al año siguiente del inicio de vigencia"

    Is it ok to say:

    "the manufactured year cannot be later than a year after the effective period started"


    thanks!!

    I’m missing something, so I'm unsure.

    The year of manufacture should not be later than one year after the (what? rules, specifications, laws, contracts) were put in force.

    Usually "vigencia" is used to express the validity of something, like a document :licencia de conducir vigente = valid drivers licence

    In Industry, I belive they could be talking about a product's warranty.
