The order issued by the government of Japan in New Tokyo-2 in episode 25' "Air". This order means the "abolishment of special legal protection for NERV and transfer of all command to the government of Japan". Order "A-17" was issued when attempting to capture the Eighth Angel, so all "A-" orders are thought to be emergency actions related to NERV.
