A qualifying crematory operation may be eligible to receive a registration permit if it contains the following sources, besides exempt equipment, at the facility:
The crematory incinerator must be one such that most of the necessary equipment required for cremation is sold in one package. Field assembly should be minimal; the unit should be pre-tested, pre-plumbed, and pre-wired at a factory. The unit shall be of the controlled atmosphere design, consisting of a primary chamber, secondary chamber, controls, burners, and/or refractory lined stacks. Details of the unit's volumes, dimensions, and other requirements shall be accessible through manufacturer's data, maintenance manuals, and/or operating instructions.
A crematory incinerator located at an agricultural facility and used solely for agricultural cremation does not qualify for coverage under this registration permit.
Copy of the Permit:
** Note that these copies are provided for use by facilities that have already been granted coverage by the Bureau. Download and use of these permits does not constitute coverage.**
If the operations covered by construction permits are located in one of the eight coastal counties of the Coastal Zone under DHEC-OCRM's jurisdiction (Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Horry and Jasper), then a coastal zone consistency certification may be required.
