Law/Patents - Law (general)
Russian term or phrase: ненормативный акт
My UN legal glossary explains that this is a legal act that does not contain a (general) rule of law.
Context - a company is complaining about a ненормативный акт issued by a tax authority.

Any ideas how I could express this idea more concisely? I really don't like "non-regulatory act"!

Reference: Definition of "ненормативный акт" with respect to Tax Authorities

Reference information:
... ненормативный правовой акт обязателен для исполнения только конкретными лицами, которые в нем же и указаны. Поэтому его зачастую называют правовым актом индивидуального характера.http://www.buhgalteria.ru/article/5086

What it means that "ненормативный акт" is in most cases a letter from the Tax Authorities demanding certain actions from the adressee.

Emily, thanks! But Ellen's answer is actually the correct one (no matter how awkward the wording sounds). :-))) Can't claim the points for doing background work. :-)

You whole-hearted "thank you" is more than enough! :-)
