Ministry of Foreign Affairs

South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA; Korean: 외교부; Hanja: 外交部) is in charge of the country's foreign relations, as well as handling matters related to overseas Korean nationals. It was established on 17 July 1948.

Its main office is located in the MOFA Building in Jongno District, Seoul.[2] The ministry previously had its headquarters in a facility in Doryeom-dong in Jongno District.[3]

History

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was created in 1948 following the Government Organisation Law under the Rhee Syng-man administration.[4] It undertook matters of foreign policy, protection of overseas Korean nationals, international economy, treaties, diplomacy and the assessment of international and overseas public relations.[5] The top priority for the Ministry was initially to focus on the “international recognition of the new Korean government as the only legitimate one on the Korean peninsula”.[4] Shortly after the Ministry was established, overseas missions in the United States, the United Kingdom and France were set up.[5]

In 1963 the Educational Institute of Foreign Service Officers was established to further educate foreign public officials and improve their work efficiency.[6] In 1965 the Educational institute became the Research Institute of Foreign Affairs.[5] In December, 1976 the Research Institute was reorganised again to become the Institute for Foreign Affairs and Security.[6] In 2012, this institution developed into the Korea National Diplomatic Academy and has the largest research and training institution of its kind within South Korea.[5]

In 1998, the ministry's name was changed to Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MOFAT, 외교통상부), and it was given jurisdiction over external trade.[7] In 2013, it reverted to its earlier name of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs following Park Geun-hye’s reorganisation plan, and the responsibility for trade matters was handed over to the Ministry of Knowledge Economy, which was renamed the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.[8]

Organisation

The minister is supported by two vice-ministers, vice-ministerial-level chancellor of Korea National Diplomatic Academy and Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs.

Key diplomatic tasks

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs engages in a number of diplomatic tasks that primarily aim to build international relationships, promote peace and protect the Republic of Korea and Korean nationals. According to the ministry website, these tasks aim to fulfil the national vision of a ‘nation of the people, a just Republic of Korea’. They are summarised below as follows: [9]

  • Peaceful resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue and the establishment of a peace regime on the Korean Peninsula

Diplomatically achieve complete denuclearisation and build a ‘permanent and solid peace regime on the Korean Peninsula’.

  • Promotion of national interest through public and participatory diplomacy

Increase understanding and support of the Republic of Korea and its foreign policy through ‘strategic public diplomacy’ and encouraging public participation and communication.

  • Pursuing assertive cooperative diplomacy with neighbouring countries

Proactively and assertively strengthen cooperation with China, Japan and Russia with the ‘alliance between the Republic of Korea and the United States of America playing a central role’. As a gateway to tackling the North Korean nuclear issue and Eurasian diplomatic relations, the strengthening of these relationships aims to create a foundation for permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula.

  • Establishment of a Northeast Asia+ Community of Responsibility

Establish the Northeast Asia Peace and Cooperation Platform and pursue its New Northern Policy and New Southern Policy with the aim of building a ‘peaceful and cooperative environment conducive to the long-term prosperity and survival of the Republic of Korea’.

  • Strengthening economic diplomacy and development cooperation to promote national interest

Create an international economic environment, increase engagement with emerging market countries and actively respond to climate change. Cooperatively increase contributions to the international community enhance national interest.

  • Strengthening the protection of Korean nationals traveling abroad and expanding support of overseas Koreans

Systemically protect and increase the benefits of Korean nationals residing abroad and ‘vitalize the Korean global network’ through strengthening their capacity.

2021 P4G Seoul Summit

The South Korean MoFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) is involved in creating environmental policies and working with countries around the world to achieve sustainable development goals (SDGs). As such they are hosting the P4G Seoul Summit in late May 2021. The event will be done online due to the COVID-19 crisis, and will look into improving the current climate change situation. The summit will look into improving the global public-private cooperation.[10] The foreign minister Chung Eui-yong is particularly involved in this initiative as this has a significant impact on the relationship between the ROK and other countries such as the US and Denmark.[11]

June 2015 saw South Korea publish its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), an initiative by which countries focus on improving their environmental goals. The country set the aim of lowering emissions by 37% by 2030. As well as this, South Korea has participated in many initiatives to lower their carbon footprint such as the COP21 in Paris, ratifying the document in December 2015.[12] Korea has taken a ‘green growth’ approach to climate change but despite these efforts there was actually an increase in coal usage over the past decade. Predictions have shown that Korea is not likely to reach the set targets.[13] The MoFA, however, has been in close contact with Denmark to work together on their Green Growth Alliance (2011) in an attempt to make the P4G Seoul Summit a success.[14]

Korean Pharmacopoeia


Introduction

The Korean Pharmacopoeia is the 한국약전 (藥典, British English: pharmacopoeia, American English: pharmacopeia, Japanese: 藥局方, Chinese (China): 药典, German: Arzneibuch). It is a compendium for pharmaceuticals established by the Korean government for the improvement of public health with the characteristics of official standards for the description and quality of medicines that are generally recognized to be safe and effective in the treatment and prevention of diseases and its role should be to specify the standards of medicines in the preparation, identification, efficacy, quality, and storage.[1]

Compendiums with legal effect include the Korean Pharmacopoeia (KP), the Japanese Pharmacopoeia (JP), the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP), the European Pharmacopoeia, and the International Pharmacopoeia. [2] Foreign pharmacopeias recognized by the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act are six pharmacopoeias: the US Pharmacopoeia, the Japanese Pharmacopoeia, the British Pharmacopoeia, the German Pharmacopoeia, the French Pharmacopoeia, and the European Pharmacopoeia.

Article 3 (Deadline of Re-review)


Origin

The Korean Pharmacopoeia was established under the Pharmaceutical Affairs Act (Act No. 11421) Article 51. The first version was established and proclaimed on October 10, 1958, the second in 1967, and the third in 1976. Since then, revision has been made every 5 years and the 9th Edition was published in 2007.


Modifications of editions
The first edition of KP was promulgated and published with 635 monographs on October 10, 1958 by Ministry of Health and Welfare Notification No. 25. To keep pace with the development of new drugs and their test methods, the second edition of KP was revised and published as follows: 725 monographs in Monographs Part I on October 10, 1968; 457 monographs in Monographs Part II on July 15, 1968; The Supplement I on August 29, 1968; The Supplement II on May 28, 1969; and Supplement III on January 24, 1972.

Starting from the third edition of KP, promulgated on December 10, 1976, Monographs Part I and Part II were combined in publication. Monographs, Part I was covered with 656 monographs of frequently-used pharmaceuticals and primary preparations, while Monographs Part II, with 357 monographs, mostly consisted of compound preparations, making 1013 monographs in total. This was followed by the publication of 146 monographs in the Supplement I on February 1,1978 and 72 monographs in the Supplement II on January 13, 1979.

The fourth edition of KP was promulgated on March 1,1982 with 785 monographs in Monographs Part I and 427 monographs in Monographs Part II, making 1212 monographs in total, and the Supplement I was published on November 24, 1982. The fifth edition of KP was promulgated on April 22,1987 with 868 monographs in Monographs Part I and 440 monographs in Monographs Part II, making 1308 monographs in total. The Supplement I, containing 8 monographs and correction tables, was published on March 16, 1988.

The sixth edition of KP was promulgated on April 7,1992 with 986 monographs in Monographs Part I and 442 monographs in Monographs Part II, making 1428 monographs in total. Supplement I, containing revised test methods and correction tables, was published on March 26, 1993. The seventh edition of KP was promulgated on December 31, 1997. Monographs, Part I was covered with 1007 monographs of most of single component drugs and Monographs, Part II was covered with 475 monographs of Herbal Drugs, Herbal Drug Preparations, Biological Preparations, Compound Preparations, Pharmaceutical Excipients and Hygienic Products. The Supplement I, containing correction tables and revised test methods, was published on February 19, 2000 following the establishment of the Korea Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) in February 1998 to be in charge of food and drug safety.

The eighth edition of KP was promulgated on December 30, 2002 with 1018 monographs in Monographs Part I and 467 monographs in Monographs Part II, making 1485 monographs in total. The Supplement was published on July 24, 2006, deleting 23 monographs from Monographs Part I by the revision in the Specifications of Antimicrobial Pharmaceuticals and containing correction tables.

The ninth edition of KP was promulgated on December 28, 2007 with 1093 monographs in Monographs Part I and 418 monographs in Monographs Part II, making 1511 monographs in total. The Supplements were revised with correction tables and across eight revisions. On November 1, 2010, the Supplements 1 through 4 were combined to publish Supplements (1~4) for the 9th Edition followed by the Supplements (5~6) on July 29, 2011 and Supplements (7~8) on June 25, 2012.

The supplements from 2009 to 2012, which were published in order to actively respond to the international trend towards the globalization of pharmacopoeia by the international harmonization organization founded by the United States, European Union and Japan, as well as advancements in medical and pharmaceutical sciences, provided the foundation for the tenth revision of the KP.

 In July 2011, prior to the final revision of the tenth edition of KP, the KFDA proposed the "Guidelines for Revising the Korean Pharmacopoeia," prescribing specific rules and instructions for revision in order to facilitate systematic and consistent description of information throughout the revised draft. On September 15, 2011, the Committee for Pharmacopoeia and Specifications of Pharmaceuticals and the Subcommittee for Pharmacopoeia and Standards for Pharmaceuticals reviewed and determined the Guidelines along with the revision schedule for the tenth edition, which were used as basic policies and guidelines for the revised draft.

Proposed by the KFDA after reviewing and reflecting the results of data investigations and experiments in response to the international harmonization, the revised draft fully included the opinions generated from experts in the field of the pharmaceutical industry in order to ensure a transparent revision of the KP. Professional opinions were collected from a variety of sectors, including pharmaceutical experts to boost the scientific validity and rationality of the Pharmacopoeia, by providing related Korean organizations with relevant information through a preliminary study of the Society of Korean Official Compendium for Public Health and through the Korean Pharmacopoeial Forum, which has been in publication since 2003. Moreover, key matters of the revision were determined by exchanges of opinion through the KFDA's expert councils in the fields of Drugs, Herbal Drugs, Biological Preparations, and Quasi-drugs, followed by a process of gathering a full range of opinions from academic circles and the pharmaceutical industry.

The five principles for drafting the KP are the same as those from the 9th Edition:

1) to include all drugs which are relevant from the viewpoint of healthcare and medical treatment

2) to revise in a timely fashion in part, if necessary, for efficient application

3) to follow international harmonization

4) to ensure transparency regarding the revision of the KP and render the document publicly available

5) to include up-to-date analytical methods in a timely fashion and include reference standards.

The draft for the tenth edition of KP was prepared and reviewed in the meetings of Subcommittee for Pharmacopoeia and Standards of Pharmaceuticals and the Subcommittee for Herbal Drug Preparations and the revised draft was finalized as the 10th edition of KP in the Committee for Pharmacopoeia and Specifications of Pharmaceuticals of the Central Committee for Pharmaceutical Affairs on September 15, 2012. The tenth edition of KP was promulgated on December 27, 2012 by the Notification of the Commissioner of the Korea Food and Drug administration.

Controversia y Criticismo

Controversia sobre la unificación de la administración alimentaria 

La solicitud de unificación de la administración de seguridad alimentaria se hizo más fuerte porque el Ministerio de Seguridad de Alimentos y Medicamentos no respondió de manera efectiva al escándalo de los huevos de pesticidas en 2017. Esto se debió a que el Ministerio de Seguridad de Alimentos y Medicamentos no cumplió adecuadamente la función de una torre de control que supervisa la gestión de la seguridad alimentaria. Inicialmente, cuando se estableció el Ministerio de Seguridad Alimentaria y Farmacéutica en 2013, fue diseñado para actuar como una torre de control en la gestión de la higiene y la seguridad alimentaria, pero debido a la oposición del Ministerio de Agricultura, Alimentación y Asuntos Rurales y grupos de agricultores, se hizo difícil gestionar orgánicamente la seguridad alimentaria. En el momento del escándalo de los pesticidas, el tráfico estaba organizado para que el Primer Ministro asumiera el papel de una torre de control, pero el Comité de Salud y Bienestar de la Asamblea Nacional ordenó un suplemento general, diciendo: "Expone una laguna en el sistema de unificación para gestión de la inocuidad de los alimentos que debe garantizar la inocuidad de los alimentos”. La Federación también dijo que “es deseable unificar las ventanillas para una gestión orgánica y eficiente”. En respuesta, el Ministro de Agricultura, Alimentos y Asuntos Rurales, Kim Young-rok, dijo: "Compartiremos información y personas con el Ministerio de Seguridad de Alimentos y Medicamentos", y dijo que el juicio adecuado es más importante que el tema de la unificación. 

La Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos, predecesora del Ministerio de Seguridad de Alimentos y Medicamentos, también tuvo controversia sobre la unificación de la administración de alimentos. Incluso cuando ocurrieron el incidente de la cabeza del ratón galleta de camarones y el caso de contaminación de productos lácteos con melamina en China en 2008, el sistema de gestión estaba dualizado con el Ministerio de Agricultura, Alimentación y Asuntos Rurales, por lo que no fue posible responder adecuadamente. Fue. Sin embargo, el entonces Ministro de Agricultura y Alimentación, Jang Tae-pyeong, y el entonces Director de la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos, Yoon Yeopyo, dijeron: "Es correcto que el Ministerio de Agricultura y Alimentación esté a cargo de la industria alimentaria y la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos". La Administración de Medicamentos está a cargo de la seguridad alimentaria".

Sin embargo, algunos argumentan que en un país que depende de las importaciones para el 80% de los alimentos como Corea, debería haber una organización a cargo del trabajo especializado en seguridad alimentaria. Además, de acuerdo con la 「Ley Marco sobre Seguridad Alimentaria」, se argumentó que el papel del Comité de Políticas de Seguridad Alimentaria del Primer Ministro debería mejorarse porque el Primer Ministro actúa como una torre de control de seguridad alimentaria. Además, también existía la necesidad de fortalecer la autoridad de aplicación, como tomar medidas enérgicas contra las violaciones del etiquetado del país de origen importado, que no es muy conocido porque solo puede usarse para alimentos nacionales a pesar de que tiene poderes especiales de policía judicial.


La lucha de poder entre el Ministerio de Seguridad Alimentaria y Farmacéutica y el Ministerio de Agricultura y Alimentación ha sido controvertida incluso en los círculos políticos, y no se ha encontrado una solución adecuada. Aunque las discusiones continuaron en los círculos políticos, como Hwang Ju-hong, miembro del Partido Popular, que representa la enmienda de la “Ley de Organización Gubernamental” para abolir el Ministerio de Seguridad de Alimentos y Medicamentos y unificar las tareas nacionales de seguridad alimentaria al Ministerio. de Agricultura y Alimentación, las discusiones continuaron en los círculos políticos, pero incluso dentro del gobernante Partido Democrático de Corea, el Ministerio de Alimentación, Agricultura, Alimentos y Asuntos Rurales y el Ministerio de Salud y Bienestar Se están planteando opiniones contradictorias entre los legisladores pertenecientes al el comité de bienestar, y el Ministerio de Seguridad Alimentaria y Farmacéutica y el Ministerio de Agricultura y Alimentación están luchando para tomar la iniciativa con el partido gobernante sobre sus espaldas
