The SCP Foundation in Germany is a self-organized subsidiary of the SCP Foundation and is answerable directly to the O5. It was founded after the 2nd World War to secure, contain and protect artifacts from the SS and other organizations of the 3rd Reich.
Initially, all directors and supervisors were chosen by the O5 and came from the parent foundation as, with the war just over, the O5 had concerns about the loyalty of the personnel who had previously been in service for the 3rd Reich. In the 1960th the Committee For Accounting Of The NS-Crimes Of Foundation Personal was founded, and especially some former SS-Officers were reclassified as D-personal.
In the 1970s, the SCP Foundation in Austria - which was also founded after the 2nd World War - was integrated into the SCP Foundation in Germany, and most of the personnel of the parent Foundation was sent to sites in their homelands.
After the fall of the Soviet Union, the SCP Foundation in Germany gained more autonomy, to take care of the remnants of the Red Army as well as anomalous stocks of the Stasi and other organizations of the GDR.
Today the SCP Foundation in Germany has ██ sites in Germany and Austria, and is responsible for most of the SCPs on German and Austrian ground. This doesn't mean, however, that the parent Foundation wouldn't have its own sites in Germany.
It is lead by the Directors Council, a council of all Site-Directors which is presided by the director of Site-DE1. The council is under the authority of and exclusively accountable to the O5. As all directors have clearance Level 4, the directors council is sometimes called 'the O4'. Though not all Level 4 personnel are members of the Council and the term is factually wrong, it has established even among the directors.
Germans who are members of the O5 are not members of the SCP Foundation in Germany, but only of the O5.
