The purpose of this Act is to protect citizens' health and the environment from hazards posed by persistent organic pollutants and to promote international cooperation by prescribing matters necessary for the control of persistent organic pollutants, such as dioxins, etc., which are prescribed by the Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants for the implementation thereof.
Although this Act existed beforehand, it was included in the Integrated notice for the first time since 2015. The reason for this is due to the failure of the relevant ministry to notify this Act to the division responsible for the Integrated notice.
