Specifica N° 306932 esp 00

English translation:>> see below <<
Explanation:
Often in the U.S., technical specifications refer to an individual test that the materials in question must pass. Accordingly, your "Specification No. 306932" may be referring to "Test ("esperienza" or "esperimento") No. 00 (which sounds like the essential basic test). -- Alternatively, the "00" could refer to a version, revision, or iteration of the specification, or to a supplementary explanatory document ("esposizione," "esplicazione," or "esposto"). -- If none of these suggestions rings a bell, you probably wouldn't raise a lot of eyebrows by sinply writing "Esp. [No.] 00." -- Best, HC

Explanation:
In this case, where the meaning is obviously not clear, I always simply make a phonecall, possibly to the writer of the document. Usually people are eager to help.
