    would you use that for your own way of speech as a native speaker, or what would you suggest instead of that
    Sorry, ssendur, I've only just seen your post.

    "It is required not to do that."

    No, I don't think I would do that.

    Maybe, depending on context:

    "You must not do that."
    "Doing that is not permitted."
    "It is not permitted to do that."

    There are other variants too.

    Do you have a particular context?
