English translation:attaching a 'released' lable (by extension: 'releasing').
Explanation:
From the scarce google hits, my take is that this is (a) jargon and (b) means 'apply(ing) a lable indicating that an item has been released' (e.g. by Incoming Inspection).
Naturally, in your context it needs to be understood in a more general sense...

Low confidence because this is an educated guess and there may be an equivalent English jargon term
