Spanish term or phrase: "al menos"
I am translating an official record of entry in a Commercial Registry.
Beneath all of the required information reads the following, which has me a bit baffled...Please note that the punctuation is from the original and has not been changed by me:

"NO HA TENIDO ACCESO al Registro las palabras "al menos", contenidas en el apartado XX de los estatutos sociales, por contravenir lo dispuesto en el art. XXX de la ley de sociedades de responsabilidad limitata...ni la enumeracion de facultades contenidas en el art. XXX de los citados estatutos sociales...

Perhaps someone can help me with the meaning- are they referring to the specific words "al menos"?

I agree with Nokostya. Besides, the fact that "al menos" appears in quotation marks means that it´s actually referring to the term itself. This, I think, is your problem, and not the actual translation of the term, am I correct?. But then again, you may have introduced the quotation marks yourself in order to highlight for our sakes, in which case, "at least", as Nokostya well pointed out, would be the correct translation.
