    Upon approval

    When people say to do something upon someone's approval, does it mean they have gotten approval already or they will do something after they get approval but they didn't get it yet?

    Re: Upon approval

    They are awaiting approval. It is conditional on the approval of another party. "The new law will take effect upon approval of the mayor."
