In 19th May 2014, the government announced that KCG(Korea Coast Guard) is dissolved regarding responsibility for recently accident which is Sewol ferry disaster. But KCG, a central administrative agency is responsible for protecting maritime sovereignty of South Korea; the most basic and indispensable organization. Furthermore, The purpose of KCG is to provide the safety of the public and keeping of public order by prescribing matters necessary for the securement of maritime security, maintenance of public order and protection of marine resources & facilities. Therefore, In this article, I would like to suggest tentatively named FRAMEWORK ACT ON KOREA COAST GUARD's management plan which could reflect the scope of functions. It means we examine the current state of KCG, and would like to signpost for the most ideal way of legal system in Korea Coast Guard. Finally, this treatise is expected that this research can be a guideline contribute to improving Korea Coast Guard relevant laws even a little.
