'Specialist fault' - or- 'faults requiring a specialist'
Explanation:
This is a bit of a short in the dark, given the very minimal information you have provided. It sounds as though this is to do with a fault classification (or categorisation) system. In this case, the meaning I get is that there is a category of fault, which requires specialist intervention and that this has been termed 'Défaut de spécialiste' in the source text. If I'm right then you might use 'specialist fault' (not immediately clear) or, if there is more space 'faults requiring a specialist' (or even 'faults requiring specialist intervention').
