This report studies a series of The Environmental Impact Assessment system in Korea pursued over a 40-year period during its development era (1970s-2010s). It has been gradually developed as a system that helps establish environmentally conscious plans beyond just conservation as various environmental problems occurred and environmental awareness such as sustainable development was raised. This report consists of four parts: the changes in Environmental Impact System, the background of the Prior Environmental Review, operation status, cases and outcomes. Korea promoted economic growth through Five-Year Plans of Economic Development. Along with the rapid economic growth, the problems of environmental pollution in the neighboring areas of heavy and chemical industrial estates were recognized as side effects of economic development. Therefore, the Environmental Office was established in 1980, and the introduction of the Environmental Impact Assessment system, the emission charges system and fundraising for the prevention of environmental pollution were promoted on the basis of instituting economic principles to challenge economic problems and prevention of environmental pollution.
