    permission is to be given for something to be done / to do something

    Hello again!

    The assembled nozzles are to be approved/inspected and permission is to be given for the nozzles to be welded on.

    Does "permission is to be given for the nozzles to be welded on" mean the same as "permission is to be given to weld the nozzles on"?

    Do the above versions mean the same and are they acceptable to you?

    The general meaning behind the sentences is that the nozzles are to be welded on and permission for this (i.e welding them on) is to be given.

    As far as I am concerned, I think so.

    Thank you.
