A non-issuer is any person, company, or organization that doesn't issue securities or have plans to issue securities.

The term most often comes up when talking about non-issuer transactions, which happen when the issuer doesn't directly benefit from a sale.

These transactions don't have to meet all kinds of registration rules.
