Abstract In many cases, the construction industry in Korea has a hierarchical structure in which a general contractor in charge of the entire project is subcontracted from the client and entrusts the construction to a specialty contractor in charge of detailed work types. In this structure, the general contractor manages and takes responsibility for the entire construction, but the person directly involved in the construction is an individual specialty contractor, so the quality and safety of the facilities will vary according to their construction and management capabilities. In order to solve quality and safety problems that may arise due to the difference between the person receiving the order for construction and the person who actually constructs it, it is necessary to let the person who receives the order perform the construction directly for projects under a certain amount. The system introduced for this purpose is the direct construction mandatory system. As described above, although this system was introduced to prevent bad construction and risk transfer, it is a system that has various problems due to the characteristics of the domestic construction industry, institutional limitations, and practical problems, so it is necessary to improve it legally and institutionally.
