In BT speak (in the UK) this is a "FNF" - Fault Not Found.
Notice the useful tense used there - so if later a fault is actually proven,
then the phrase means something different to the normal immediate
understanding people hear. I wonder how many marketing people they roped in
for this engineering process. 30 years ago.
(If people don't see what I mean, think "A fault was not found" vs. "The
fault was not found".)
