Hi Simone,

This is possible. This functionality has been introduced for EC 3.0 SP9 and all later releases till EC 3.0 SP15.

Hope, This is your question now  that the current period start date is before the parent requirement start date

1. Create a new Limit Check

2. Enter all required fieds

3. On the Tab "When" select aggregation type "Average"

4. Select the aggregation period "1 Month"

5. Select the aggregation period start date one month before the valid from date of the parent requirement

Try this solution 

A new EC Property activates the functionality to crate a period start date before the parent requirement valid from date:

1. Naviagate to EC Configuration with an EC Admin user

2. Go to Basic Settings --> EC Properties

3. Change the property "permit.limit.period.outside" value to "true"

4. Save the EC Properties

Now the period validation is disabled and limit check period start date can be defined before the parent requirement valid from date.
