The Fair Trade Commission requested technical data from small and medium-sized companies, but did not issue a document stating the relevant details.[010140]On the 18th, it announced that it would impose a fine of 52 million won along with a correction order.

According to the FTC investigation result, Samsung Heavy Industries requested 396 cases of technical data from 63 small and medium-sized companies that were entrusted with the manufacturing of shipbuilding equipment from January 2016 to November 2018. A written document stating the contents of the consultation was not provided in advance.

The Subcontracting Act allows the principal contractor to request the provision of technical data from the subcontractor (subcontractor) only when he/she proves a justifiable reason.

However, even when there is a justifiable reason for requesting technical data, it is mandatory to provide a request for technical data in order to clarify the purpose of the request, the relationship between the two parties, and to clarify matters related to confidentiality and to confirm the procedural justification in a post-dispute.

In the case of Samsung Heavy Industries, the Fair Trade Commission found that Samsung Heavy Industries requested related technical data for the purpose of checking whether the specifications, performance, and standards required by the ordering party were met. One procedure was not followed.
