ABSTRACT

Chemicals can cause enormous damage in a short time. It is relatively easy for everyone to acquire and manufacture them. And because chemicals have an effect that can make people in panic with fears, terrorist groups have regarded them as the means of terror attacks for a long time. Therefore, we should prevent hijacking and diverting of chemicals though the perfect control of them. But it is difficult to control chemicals consistently because domestic chemicals are managed by at least 7 ministries and 13 regulations according to their own purpose and usage. Especially, domestic related regulations are usually concentrated on the accident prevention system and safety management, so there are some kinds of limitations to prevent illegal usage such as terror, etc. The purpose of this study is to propose regulatory measures against chemicals which can be used in terror. To figure out effective regulatory measures, we surveyed Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards that is a related regulation in USA and analyzed the management state of chemicals in Korea. This study presents enacting a new law or amending the existing law as the regulatory measures against Terror Usable Chemicals. It also presents the way to classify and to list Terror Usable Chemicals.
