ABSTRACT

This study compares the current response system to food terrorism in South Korea with the United States in order to find implications for establishing a quick response system addressing food risk incidents in South Korea. There is no anti-terrorism act covering food terrorism or mention about food terrorism in the national guidelines for anti-terrorist actions in South Korea. The main and the related agencies in South Korea has failed to be flexible in their roles in response to food terrorism which has a strong nature of complex disaster and can cause even larger damages through the expansion of secondary damage. Therefore, South Korea is required to reform the unified crisis response system within the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety in order to make a proactive response to every type of food-related incident.
