Ad referendum

“Ad referendum” is a Latin phrase that indicates that a decision, agreement, or resolution is not final and requires further approval or confirmation from a higher authority, committee, or relevant body. It is often used in the context of agreements, resolutions, or decisions that are pending further discussion before they become official or binding.

For instance, if a committee makes a decision that is “ad referendum,” it means that the decision is not final and is subject to approval by a higher governing body or authority. The decision remains pending until it is confirmed or ratified by the appropriate entity.

In a broader sense, “ad referendum” means that certain matters are not concluded and are open to future deliberation or approval before they become binding or official.
