Purpose and Method: This study aims to suggest institutional improvements to enhance the response to electric vehicle fires. To this end, we examined the prevalence of electric vehicles, fires, and related legal systems in Seoul. Results: The top-level laws and ordinances related to electric vehicles are centered on distribution policies, so there is no practical fire response plan for electric vehicle fires. In order to apply the same regulations to each local government, it is necessary to set standards and establish a system for firefighting and safety facilities in higher laws. Conclusion: Establishing standards for the installation of fire and safety facilities that take into account the characteristics of electric vehicle fires and improving related systems will ultimately lead to an increase in the penetration rate of electric vehicles.
연구목적과 방법: 전기차 화재에 대한 대응력을 향상시키기 위해 제도적 개선방안을 제시하고자 한다. 이를 위해 서울시를 중심으로 전기차 보급 및 화재 발생 현황, 관련 법 제도를 살펴보았다. 연구결과: 전기차 관련 상위법령 및 조례는 보급정책만 중심적으로 규정되어 있어 전기차 화재에 대해 실질적인 화재 대응 방안이 없는 상황이다. 각 자치단체별로 동일한 규정을 적용하기 위해서는 상위법령에서 소방 및 안전 시설에 대한 기준 정립과 제도 확립이 필요하다. 결론: 전기차 화재 특성을 고려한 소방 및 안전시설 설치 기준을 정하고 관련 제도의 개선을 통해 전기자동차 화재에 대한 시민들의 우려를 잠식시키는 것이 궁극적으로 전기차 보급률을 향상시키는 효과로 이어질 것이다.
