An active fault is a fault that has displayed recent seismic activity, while an inactive fault has not displayed recent seismic activity.

There really is no way to concretely define a fault as "active" or "inactive" (especially because inactive faults can suddenly become active again), but it's more or less safe to say that if a fault hasn't shown tectonic activity for about 5,600 years, it's probably inactive.
