Think I can agree with your "rubber stamping" analogy buysbadly, but that won't stop or delay the process.
I also suspect if you asked your question "has Val been signed off for trial or if not what is the anticipated timeline" to the company, they are likely to say, 'the trial has started and we are on the anticipated timeline'. I understand your question mean something slightly different and I know they won't give a specific answer to that, because they can't.
Either way, expect a full update soon. I suspect, two weeks on Thursday.
