CONTENTS

1. Background for Introduction of Waste Import and Export Permission Report 
* As developed countries exported or sold wastes to underdeveloped countries in Central/Latin American and African countries to circumvent strict regulations in their own countries, pollution caused by such improper disposal of hazardous wastes emerged as a major international issue. The situation warrants the need for international cooperation aimed at environmental protection for underdeveloped countries as well as the global environment. 
* Import/export of hazardous wastes specified by the Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal requires permission under the Act on the Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal. As for other wastes, a person who intends to import or export wastes prescribed and announced by the Minister of Environment as posing the risk of pollution and international conflict caused by uncontrolled import/export or improper disposal must file a report to the Minister of the Ministry of Environment. 

2. Exporting and Importing Wastes Portal System (http://exim.allbaro.or.kr) 
* Purpose 
- to provide comprehensive information on waste import/export to waste importers/exporters and enhance user convenience by processing import/export permission, report, and other related services via the Internet 
* System Design 
- The biggest issue with waste import/export is that waste importers/exporters have difficulty with discerning which types of wastes require permission or report. 
- To address this issue, the portal is designed for such online process to ensure rapid and efficient progress of each of the permission process, and provide more expert support for various needs arising from waste import/export
