An extraordinary organ (特別の機関, Tokubetsu no kikan) is a Japanese government organization established under the Cabinet Office, ministries or their external organs (commission and agencies) when particularly necessary.[1][2] It is distinguished from a facility. The classification was created when the amendments to the National Government Organization Act [ja] were promulgated on July 1, 1984. The amendments, in particular, made it clear that the National Police Agency is an extraordinary organ attached to the National Public Safety Commission, which is an external organ of the Cabinet Office.
