chicken use by date

is the use by date on raw meats referring to the date which you can eat the meat or is it referring to when you can cook the meat.

e.g., if it says the use by date is 10th March, and I cook it on the 10th March, can I eat the cooked meat after that date?
Ideally when you consume it, but in reality if you cook it on that date, it’ll be fine to eat for a couple of days. Or freeze if you fancy.
