Busan Internationally Recognized as a Safe City by ISCCC

The City of Busan has recently been designated as an international safe community for the second consecutive time, a first among all metropolitan cities in the world.

The city announced that it has received recertification of its international safe communities network membership by the International Safe Community Certifying Centre (ISCCC) on August 19, 2019.

The ISCCC certifies “International Safe Communities” and is the leading organization of the International Safe Community movement. A “Safe Community” can be a municipality, county, city or district of a city that works towards safety promotion, injury-, violence- and suicide-prevention and the prevention of harmful consequences (human injuries) related to natural disasters, covering all age groups, gender, and areas and is a part of an international network of accredited programs. Worldwide, there are 405 cities in 40 countries designated as international safe communities.

Busan has been striving to increase the level of safety for its citizens and to create an advanced safety culture since its first designation as an International Safe Community in 2014. The City has carried out various policies to establish safe infrastructure, including the expansion of customized safety projects by gu∙gun and the improvement of its safety index. As a result of the city’s efforts, it received the highest rating in the daily safety sector among regional safety indexes announced by the Ministry of the Interior and Safety last year.

The evaluation for international safe communities by ISCCC was strictly made via an examination in writing and site inspection. The city plans to hold the proclamation ceremony for its international safe community status in October.
