This study was to build the database by collecting the results of legal leak test and self-test conducted by the owners of soil contamination facilities at soil-related specialized agency to grip objective status on soil contamination facilities and evaluate classification results. The results of the study showed that the unsuitable rate of business unit is 53.6%, the business with leak that could cause actual pollution is 25.7%, the unsuitable rate of the voluntary self-test is 57.3%, that of the compulsory inspection is 17.2% depending on the test motivation, that of the direct-test is 58.9%, and that of the indirect-test is 22.5% depending on the test methods. There was a significant difference between the test motivation conducted and the test methods applied. From the results of the unsuitable reasons obtained we could assume that about 20% of the whole target tanks became potential sources with natural defects occurred when such tanks were made, and 2.2% of the whole tankers examined that persisting period was caused by progressing corrosion below the minimum thickness.
