Abstract:

A 1989 General Accounting Office survey indicated that no U.S. Army installations had acquired a complete library of Republic of Korea ROK hazardous waste regulations. Since the Korean Waste Management Law is the primary law governing the Eighth U.S. Army EUSA hazardous waste management program, the EUSA Environmental Program Office EPO tasked the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory to translate the Korean Waste Management Law and attendant documents into English. This special report contains English translations of 1 the Korean Waste Management Law, 2 Korean Presidential Decree No. 13480, 3 Korean Prime Minister Order No. 397, and 4 Korean government forms for documentation of waste disposal. These translations will help USFK environmental managers to formulate a hazardous waste management program that recognizes and adheres to host country regulations.
