Administrative Order

Definition

A legal document issued by an administrative agency such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) directing an individual, business, or other entity to take corrective action or refrain from an activity. It describes the violations and actions to be taken and can be enforced in court. Such orders may be issued, for example, as a result of an administrative complaint whereby the respondent is ordered to pay a penalty for violations of a statute.
