The limitation period on collection of an award of costs, must run from the date of the costs certificate. It was only at that point when it became enforceable. It would be an abuse to bring an action for enforce the costs award before that date. The word enforceable had to mean enforceable in a practical way. Until certified there was nothing to enforce.
