The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards (KATS) has published the Proposed Amendments to the ‘Enforcement Ordinance of Framework Act on Product Safety’ on February 22, 2018.
The amendments require heads of the central administrative agencies to order business owners to investigate the details and cause of accidents, taking into consideration the frequency of accidents, risks and their own personal capabilities.
The methods, procedures and reports for an accident investigation with respect to the methods under Article 16 (1) of this Act shall apply.
KATS is encouraging the public to provide feedback on the proposal until April 23, 2018. Once approved, the date of entry into force will be on June 13, 2018.
