```a = {{0, 0, 1, 1}, {0, 0, 2, 2}, {0, 0, 3, 3}, {1, 1, 0,
0}, {1, 1, 2, 2}, {1, 1, 3, 3}, {2, 2, 0, 0}, {2, 2, 1, 1}, {2, 2,
3, 3}, {3, 3, 0, 0}, {3, 3, 1, 1}, {3, 3, 2, 2}}

DeleteDuplicates[a, (Sort[#1] == Sort[#2]) &]

Out[52]= {{0, 0, 1, 1}, {0, 0, 2, 2}, {0, 0, 3, 3}, {1, 1, 2, 2}, {1,
1, 3, 3}, {2, 2, 3, 3}}
