    Default as of / dated

    Hi,

    The following sentence is from a revision history of a company SOP (Standard Operating Procedures).

    December 1, 2012: Along with organization changes as of (dated) December 1, 2012, XXX Department was removed from the organization chart.

    In this case, do both "as of" and "dated" work in the same way?
    Are they both correct?
    (I mean the situation where the organization was changed on December 1 and the SOP was revised on the same day.)

    Thank you in advance.

    I would use just "on".

    Thank you, bhaisahab.
    I will use "on". :)

    But just for my information, could you (or someone) tell me whether "as of" and "dated" or correct or not please?

    We wouldn't use them together, no.

    Along with the organisation changes of December 1, 2012 ...
    Along with the organisation changes dated December 1, 2012 ...

    I wouldn't use "as of" here at all.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Thank you, emsr2d2.
    I didn't mean "together", though. I meant each of "as of" and "dated".
    But your explanation made it clear to me. Thank you again.
