German term or phrase: NB, Für eigene Zwecke
Without going into too much detail, I'm currently translating a letter concerning a German certificate of good conduct for a tenant. In the field "Belegart" (translated as "Document type"), it states "NB, Für eigene Zwecke".

This "NB" has me a little lost. I've seen suggestions that it could mean notabene, but I'm not sure this is used that often in German, or fits in the context. I'm leaning towards it meaning 'Neubekanntmachung' ('republication' or 're-issue') but I'm still unsure.

Any help would be appreciated!

Explanation:
NB also equals nota bene in English and is used in the same sense.
The text seems to indicate that the landlord is making up the certificate of good contact on a tenant, for his own internal use.
