Abstract

On September 27, 2012, an accident releasing hydrofluoric acid gas into the atmosphere at a chemical factory in the Gumi National Industrial Complex caused approximately 55 billion KRW worth of human and property damages. As a result, the development of an effective compensation and relief of damages caused by environmental pollution was selected as one of the national agenda of the Park Geun-hye administration and it started to push forward for a compensation and relief framework for damages caused by environmental pollution in earnest. Currently, a “Draft Liability, Compensation and Relief from Damages Caused by Environmental Pollution Act (Draft Act),” to promote a swift relief based on the “polluter pays” principle has been submitted to the National Assembly Judiciary Committee for deliberation.
