South Korea adopted DNA database legislation in 2010. The law requires the erasure of DNA identification information acquittal, exoneration, or dismissal of public prosecution and destruction of all biological samples once the relevant DNA profiles have been obtained. As of July 2011, about 26,000 offender profiles had been accumulated. South Korea has maintained a DNA database of missing children since 2002.
