Reference: Thanking the minute-taker

Reference information:
This seems to be it, at least according to
"Die Beispiele zeigen, wie Werte Gewohnheiten in Frage stellen:

«Frisch» für Protokolle: Schaffen Sie das «Traktandum» ab. Alternativen sind «Themen», «Inhalte», «Besprechungspunkte». Und schreiben Sie nicht mehr «Das Protokoll wird verdankt.» Alternative: weglassen oder aktiv: «Wir danken Anna Muster für das Protokoll.»

What about "approved and acknowledged" as a more neutral translation?

agree  Thomas Pfann: Nur „approved“ sollte genügen. Die Schweizer Standardformulierung sollte gegen die entsprechende englische Standardformulierung ersetzt werden (und die beinhaltet keinen Dank).
