SCP objects have not been completely contained in any portion of the world. Clearly, the Foundation has to put a higher emphasis on dealing with those groups that have shown knowledge or possession of the anomalous, rather than with others that do not. Personnel with additional information about these or other groups is to report them immediately, as to formulate an effective plan to deal with them.
Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory (JOICL)
Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory has been mentioned in several cases involving anomalous creatures, including a wide range of life forms, such as animals, plants and objects which behave like creatures.
As almost all of the creatures manifest anomalous properties or additional functions which cannot be achieved in nature or explained with ordinary modern science, the Lab does not seem to be restricted by general ethics. It is thought to be a research facility or a group of researchers possessing some kind of technology, but its actual situation has not been grasped yet.
Furthermore, Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory itself does not distribute or sell the objects directly. Its organizational purpose remains unknown.
SCPs involved in Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory (JOICL) include SCP-020-JP, SCP-044-JP, SCP-101-JP, SCP-134-JP, SCP-172-JP, SCP-196-JP, SCP-294-JP, SCP-444-JP. To see all documents tagged with JOICL, click here.
Tou-Hei Heavy Industries
Tou-Hei Heavy Industries is considered to be a group involved in manufacture of artifacts whose mechanism can not be explained by modern science. To date, many related materials have been collected by the Foundation, but the detailed organizational structure and purpose thereof have not yet been clarified. Many Foundation researchers speculate that Tou-Hei Heavy Industries' activities are mainly conducted in Japan.
Since this group's collected materials suggest that they actively provide anomalous technology to non-members of their own group, this group has to be dealt with as soon as possible.

Shūshū-In (Collecting Agency)
Shūshū-In is an organization which once collected abnormal entities in Japan, which are referred to as SCP objects by the Foundation. They had used non-scientific methods utilizing the augury, magic and religion, mainly Shintō1 and Shugendō2. Some of them are valuable and have been taken over as Special Containment Procedures of the SCP Foundation.
After the Foundation strengthened its influence in Japan, most of the members were absorbed by the Foundation and other GOIs, but radicals within Shūshū-In still retain collected objects hid out them away in hopes of restoring the organisation."

Saiga Factions are organizations consisting of POI called Rokumi Saiga (犀賀六巳) and his followers.
Rokumi Saiga refers to himself as a scientist majoring in space-time physics and is an unidentified person who seems to have conducted his activities in multiple parallel universes. The purpose of the activity is believed to be to save the target universes and human beings belonging to them.
Mr. Saiga seems to hide many abnormal items brought from various parallel universes, but searching for them has yielded scarce results. Mr. Saiga has probably gained knowledge about the Foundations and other groups related to abnormal objects in the process of going back and forth in the parallel universes and pays close attention to hiding himself from each organization.
Mr. Saiga has a certain number of human followers in several parallel universes. The followers are referred to as "Saiga Factions" and basically friendly to humanity. However, their "human beings" refer to human beings of all universes including the parallel universes, so often "Saiga Factions" activities seriously damage the present universes to which the Foundation belongs. Since "Saiga Factions" do not stick to the present universes, they will act without hesitation to save more mankinds and universes even if they anticipate the damage to the present universes. For this reason, the Foundation has designated "Saiga Factions" as Groups of Interest.
"Doctor" is an individual or a group that imitates the activities of other Groups of Interest.
A lot of objects imitating Group of Interest, "Doctor Wondertainment" have been confirmed, and there are examples that imitate "The Factory" and "Japan Organisms Improvement and Creation Laboratory". Most of the objects created by "Doctor" cause harm to users.
Although the reason for his activity is unknown, despite the consequences of his actions, it is suggested that he is motivated by the need to have fun.
SCPs involved in "Doctor" include SCP-027-JP, SCP-079-JP , SCP-463-JP, SCP-653-JP. To see all documents tagged with "Doctor", click here.
Imperial Japanese Army Special Medical Force (a.k.a. "Unit Negative Numbers")
Imperial Japanese Army Special Medical Force was an Imperial Japanese Army unit, which researched the occult and technology, founded in 1937 under the cooperation of the Army and Shūshū-In. As a common name, it was given the codename "Unit Negative Numbers".
The unit was composed of three divisions, "Tsuchigumo", "Jofuku" and "Tatara", which conducted researches mainly on magic, life science and mechanical engineering respectively. The purpose of the organization is to research and produce weapons by a combination of magic and science, including "Project Tokijiku" aiming to create immortal soldiers. Those weapons were not mass produced, however some were used in the actual war. In 1945, the organization was dismantled and most of its technology was collected by the Foundation after the end of the World War II.
SCPs involved in Unit Negative Numbers include SCP-694-JP, SCP-845-JP , SCP-1995-JP. To see all documents tagged with Unit Negative Numbers, click here.
