Release process for Material Master, Vendor master creation

Hi Sap Gurus,

We currently have a business process where in a particular User / Dep't collects the field values for Master data creation. the requirement is untill an verifier (releasing authority) releases it, the material must not be put to use.

is there an release process which could be built for Master data creation in SAP, please suggest how to go about to meet this requirement.

some Options iam thinking are.

Locking or Blocking for use Initiallly by the creator, and the verifier Unlocks or Releases it.

1) Say the creater creates and locks the material master after creation. but i did not find any authorization object for Locking / blocking the material separately,so the is problem what if the initial user creates the material and did not Lock the same, this is the issue with this solution

can this be configured / automated that, with the Creator User ID, the material getting created always gets to the Locked status / Blocked status.

and the same material is Unlocked by the Verifier User ID.

Please suggest how this can be done with Fool proof solution, May be with Standard or slight development if required

Thanks and regards
