 "Special measures law about relief of health hazard pertaining to pollution" was promulgated for (1969) 12 a year 15 days a month in 1969, and legal recognition system began. Afterwards, "law about compensation of pollution health hazard" (we say "kokenho" as follows) is enforced in (1974) year in 1974, and authorization of various places of victim is working based on said law now.

 As for the authorized person, compensation by kokenho or compensation by Chisso is chosen.
