    Usage of "being" in a sentence - request for an explanation

    Hi all,

    Could you explain me the rules concerning usage of "being" in a sentence like this - "A company may remove an entry against a person's name from its register of interests in shares if more than 6 years have elapsed since the date of the entry being made". It simply doesn't add up in my mind and I cannot find any useful explanation.
    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,
    Peter

    'Of' is a preposition, after which a noun phrase should be used instead of a clause, so 'being' should be used instead of' 'was'.
