Ministry of Food and Drug Safety

(Seoul = Larose.VIP) Reporter Kim Hyun-soo = If it is proven that a small business owner who was deceived by a teenager and sold alcohol or cigarettes checked the teenager’s ID card, he or she can be exempted from administrative punishment even before investigation by investigative and judicial authorities.

The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced on the 14th that it held an active administrative committee to deliberate and decide on the agenda.

In the course of an administrative investigation, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety provides that if it is proven through closed-circuit (CCTV) TV or multiple statements that a business operator has verified a youth’s identification card, the local government shall be exempted from administrative disposition even before the investigation and judgment of the investigative and judicial authorities. We provided guidance on how to do this, and explained that we plan to revise related laws as soon as possible in the future.

Measures to ease administrative disposition standards are also being promoted.

The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety announced that it plans to relax the standard for administrative punishment for providing alcohol to minors from 2 months to 7 days, and to push for revision of the law so that business suspension can be converted to a fine if business operators wish.

According to the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, this measure was taken to address the issue that business operators who were deceived and sold alcohol to young people are bearing excessive responsibility at a public livelihood debate held on the 8th hosted by the Ministry of SMEs and Startups.
