Notes to answerer
Asker: Does this mean that by signing the approval, they accept it?

Asker: Makes perfect sense now. As for brain cells, they are toast, good for nothing now, burned to a crisp.

Asker: I am unable to close this question. It turns out Kim is right, it had to be acceptance and not approval, and protocol worked better in the context of the document. Thanks. :)

agree  Ken Cox: in normal language, you could say 'signing the document makes it official'

  -> Thanks a lot Ken

neutral  Kim Metzger: I think it's the "act of acceptance" or "constitutes acceptance". And it's the acceptance protocol. http://www.dict.cc/english-german/acceptance protocol.html
