A local alert is typically the caption light in the pushbutton associated with an ECAM alert. For example, the HOT light in the BRAKE FANS pb is associated with the BRAKES HOT ECAM caution. Another example is the amber message "CHECK" on the upper ECAM display with an ENG 1(2) N1 OR N2 OR EGT OR FF DISCREPANCY ECAM alert. Not every ECAM alert is associated with a local caution/warning. This is part of the "Cockpit Effect" seen by the flight crew and usually reported in the aircraft logbook: an ECAM warning, a local warning, a flag, or any invalid function such as a missing audio signal, amber crosses on a system page, etc. Regarding the QRH table "REQUIRED EQUIPMENT FOR CAT2 AND CAT3", I think that an "ATT" flag constitutes a relevant local warning.
