Portuguese term or phrase: Egrégia (neste contexto)
"(...) por designação da Egrégia Corregedoria Geral de Justiça"

Trata-se de uma certidão de nascimento. Estou com dúvidas se hei-de traduzir por "egregious" ou apenas "distinguished" (ou nenhuma das duas). Gostaria de ouvir algumas opiniões. Obrigada desde já.
