What are some polite ways to remind people of pending workplace tasks?

I work in a situation where people request software modifications etc, we make the changes and then they have to approve them before they get implemented in the real system. This is painful, as they sit on the approvals forever. They are very busy people, and frequently the change is not their top priority. They are also sometimes very important people in terms of workplace position etc. What is a good way to remind these people of open tasks that require their action without seeming like a nag? I don't want them to forget, (this does happen) but at the same time, the timeline is ultimately up to them.
