Abstract:

Our objective was to inspect DoD military housing in the Republic of Korea for compliance with DoD and Federal environmental health and safety policies and standards. Those policies and standards include the Unified Facilities Criteria UFC, National Fire Protection Association NFPA codes and standards, National Electrical Code NEC, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency EPA standards. The majority of deficiencies violations of code identified during our inspection were attributed to insufficient inspection, maintenance, and repair of housing facilities. We identified a total of 646 deficiencies that could affect the health, safety, and well-being of warfighters and their families 298 fire protection systems, 279 electrical systems, 53 environmental health and safety, and 16 housing management. Of the total deficiencies, we identified 11 critical deficiencies requiring immediate action in Notices of Concern NOCs to U.S. Pacific Command PACOM and U.S. Forces Korea USFK.
