German term or phrase: zu lfd. Nr. 3:
This appeared as a subheading in an official document. My problem is lfd. I know this stands for laufend but how could I translate the whole phrase? How about "on/to item no.3"?

English translation:re. item 3
Explanation:
I agree that you could leave the laufend (consecutively) out and simply put "re. item 3" or maybe "re. numbered item 3".

RE: current item #3


Explanation:
Laufend can mean current, running, or serial. The link below illustrates how it is used in connection with a number although I opted for 'current' as 'item' is part of the original.
Cheerio,
