ABSTRACT

The potential danger of a sunken ship is one of the most important risk factors of a major maritime accident following the risk of accident of a vessel in operation. This paper reviewed the Marine Safety Act, the Oceanic Environment Management Act and the Public Water Management Act for their contents of sunken ship management, and analyzed the problems of the current legal system in South Korea. It is found that the current legislation on the management of sunken ships does not manage the risk of environmental pollution of isolated cargo carried by sunken ships. Due to the different rules across the laws, there is limited management of environmental pollution risk for sunken ships on water surface. This study also identified the problems of risk assessment for sunken ships. The findings of this study propose an amendment of each law to fine-tune management targets and areas, along with an integrated guideline and comprehensive risk assessment system for sunken ships.
