Explanation:
As you will know yourself, the matter of translating authorities, ministries etc. is always a difficult one.
To my knowledge, there is no official or accepted translation into German.
Best to leave it in English with an explanation in brackets, especially if you have a law text where clients will probably want to know the actual name of an authority.
