Extrajudicial document
Explanation:
"Acte extrajudiciaire : il s’agit tout simplement d’un acte (ou " exploit ") d’huissier. Une mise en demeure par acte
extrajudiciaire se distingue d’une mise en demeure par lettre recommandée avec AR. La loi prévoit précisément les cas où
l’acte d’huissier est obligatoire."

Here is another text and its translation, which will help you:

"Les actes extrajudiciaires émanant des autorités et officiers ministériels d'un Etat contractant peuvent être transmis aux fins
de signification ou de notification dans un autre Etat contractant selon les modes et aux conditions prévus par la présente
Convention."
http://www.hcch.net/f/conventions/text14f.html#ch2

"Extrajudicial documents emanating from authorities and judicial officers of a Contracting State may be transmitted for the
purpose of service in another Contracting State by the methods and under the provisions of the present Convention."
