Korea Customs Service
As early as in the 15th Century, during the reign of King SEJONG, Korea began Customs administration by opening three of her ports to foreign vessels. This tradition was carried on and led to the establishment of the first Customs at Dumojin, Busan at an early stage of the nation's modernization in 1878. However, the development of Customs administration in the nation was impaired by the military and political intervention of foreign powers between 1910 and 1948. With the launch of the independent government of the Republic of Korea on August 15, 1948; the Customs Bureau was created in the Ministry of Finance. Then in 1970, the Korea Customs Service (KCS) was established as an independent organization to meet an increasing demand for effective Customs administration that could keep up with the growing trade volume and the number of passengers. Still, under the Government Organization Act, Customs and Tariff Bureau of the Ministry of Finance and Economy (MOFE) provides the KCS with ample support through its three divisions: Customs Policy Division, Industry & Tariff Division, and International Customs Cooperation Division.
