A legal document requiring action (4)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a double definition.

'a legal document' is the first definition.
(I know that deed is a type of legal document)

'action' is the second definition.
(deed is a kind of action)

'requiring' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for deed that I've seen before include "Act - exploit - legal document" , "Heroic exploit" , "Feat" , "Action - legal document" , "Intentional action" .)
