waiver
Explanation:
I think waiver is the common term in English. The latin choice may be better if it is an ultra-legal document.
Hope it helps,

Thanks Bruna - this is the second time I have done this, so the complaints recently about persons not "closing" their queries may not always be justified.
Thanks also to others, but Bruna's explanation suited the context best.

Nihil obstat


Explanation:
Lascerei il termine in latino pure in un testo inglese. È una frase conosciuta, credo. E poi fa molto "giuridico".

Buona fortuna!

Explanation:
the Italian expression ''dare il nulla osta'' can be tranlated as ''to give the goahead'' or ''to give authorisation'' depending on context and style.

Good luck!
