*Translator’s note: An alternate enumeration structure has been adopted due to the fact that the characters used in the Korean statute required the use of a different form of numbering. The order, however, is the same. The alternate enumeration is generally consistent with the UNCITRAL Model Law 1985 on which the statute is based. We trust this will not result in any confusion.
