English term or phrase: rubber stamp board
The rubber-stamp board shows little concern for either the
tasks of the board or the interpersonal relationships among the
directors. Examples of such boards can be found in the “letterbox”
companies registered in many offshore tax havens. The
meetings of the board are a formality. Indeed, they are often
minuted without them actually taking place.

junta directiva o directorio existente como instancia/institución de mero trámite


Explanation:
rubber stamp a veces se traduce como mero trámite, este es un contexto diferente, no creo que se deba usar "inoperante" o calificativos de ese calibre. Es una instancia o institución dentro de una corporación que cumple (opera) con una función existir para cumplir con lo minimo requerido por ley (me imagino aprobar balances y elegir directores... sin siquiera reunirse :) )

Tampoco es ficticio, es real ante la ley - es discutible lo de ficticio

Consejo que no es más que un timbre


Explanation:
Así se expresa cuando no tiene poder, identidad ni validez real.
Sólos se limitan a timbrar. Muchos Congresos, bajo dictadura, pasaron a ser entidades sin poder real.
