  • 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.

  • Since ocean dumping of wastes was permitted by law in 1900, the amount of wastes dumped into the sea has increased ten times for 15 years. As a result, the dumping sites has been deteriorated so much that the pollution has become a social problem. The 96 Protocol to the 72 London Convention, which requires the contracting party's stricter control on the disposal of wastes at sea, took effect on March 24, 2006. Therefore, our country has become confronted to the situation on which it cannot delay putting a restraint on ocean dumping. Hereupon, Korea Coast Guard (KCG) initiates a dumping sites recovery program. The program is intended to curb the amount of wastes dumped at sea and to recover the polluted dumping sites. In this paper, the current status of our country's management of ocean dumping of wastes is examined and the future condition is anticipated KCG's ocean dumping management measures are also presented.

  • Approximately 12,547 kL of oil from the tanker 'Hebei Spirit' released into the western sea of Korea, which subsequently reached and covered extensive areas of the western coastlines of Korea. In the following days great numbers of tar balls hit the southwestern coast. Three different cleanup methods were used to mediate the southwestern coastline tar ball pollution by Korea Coast Guard (KCG) net setting, manual pick up, and sweeping them up. Net setting was useful in protecting coastlines from being hit by tar balls. The cold weather in winter conditions helped the tar ball response efforts because it caused them to harden, allowing them to be swept up from beaches and to be gathered up by hand.

  • This paper proposes that the Marine Search & Rescue and Salvage Association of Korea (MARSA) can provide KCG a very positive return on investment; that is, MARSA will save lives and property well over the budget needed from KCG to operate MARSA. To perform this Cost-Benefit Analysis, actual performance data and other figures are taken from the USCG Auxiliary, and these figures are used to project expected possible MARSA results. In this paper, MARSA is projected to provide a 1,493 % return on investment.

  • Due to limitations in responding to oil spill incidents that are urgent or that cover a wide area with only oil spill response vessels, Korea Coast Guard (KCG) patrol vessels are utilized. In this study, we have developed an oil sweep system suitable for small patrol vessels. The equipment consists of three components - fixed support, poles, and slide fixers - and can be fastened with a toggle pin to a fall prevention bar on small patrol vessels without welding or additional efforts for installation. The respective weights of each component - fixed support, poles (2 pcs), and slide fixers (4 pcs) - are approximately 9.2 kg, 6.5 kg, and 3.5 kg. The 3 m-pole, which is rotatable 180 degrees horizontally, is folded deckward when replacing oil absorbents. As the development of this equipment has improved the method of deploying and retrieving oil absorbents on KCG small patrol vessels, we expect that more efficient oil spill cleanup will be possible.

  • KCG, responsible Agency of maritime SAR operation has been known to address the marine casualties well, however, it was criticized because KCG failed to take prompt and effective response to the recent Ferry disaster at the very early stage. In this regards, the authors analyze the characteristics of marine incident with historical data, and also review and examine the national SAR system focusing on SAR coordination and human resources to make recommendation and suggestion in order to minimize the loss of lives to future marine incidents. As a result, KCG shall augment its capabilities, inter alia, fast libeboats and rescue helicopters for prompt response to marine incidents at the coastal waters, and KCG shall re-adjust the establishment of Rescue Coordination Center to improve operational problems of current system in accordance with IMO guidance, KCG is required to introduce mandatory training, qualification and certificate system to enhance the professionalism of SAR personnel.
