Investigation of Marine Accidents Occurring Overseas

When a Korea-flagged vessel is involved in a marine accident in international waters or the territorial waters of a foreign state, the KMST dispatches investigators to the scene of the accident and conducts a joint investigation with the investigation agency of the substantially interested state with the aim of protecting the interests of Korea-flagged vessels and accurately identifying the causes of the accident.
