neutral  philgoddard: Administrativo is a false friend. It means "government".

  -> In Spain, "Administración" usually means the government, whether local, regional or national. However, that doesn't mean that "administrative" as used here is a false friend. Far from it.

neutral  AllegroTrans: The "doubt" could be resolved if the asker would provide the relevant context
7 hrs
  -> It is what it is. No doubt about that chez moi.

agree  Robert Carter: Having looked at the source of this, yes. This is a "for jurists" text, so administrative is in no way a false friend here, although you could make it clearer with "administrative-law prohibition" or some other workaround.
