DHEC conducts regulatory review

COLUMBIA, S.C. - The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control invites the public, including businesses, employees, professional associations, conservation organizations, and any other affected person or entity to comment on statutes and regulations implemented by DHEC that may unduly burden businesses or employers. Comments on proposed statutes and regulations are also welcome.

Recently, Governor Nikki Haley established a Regulatory Review Task Force to evaluate the state’s current regulatory burdens on businesses and to propose recommendations to relieve those burdens. As part of this review, the Task Force will evaluate reports submitted by agencies that identify current and proposed statutes, rules, regulations, and policies that are a burden on South Carolina’s economy.

DHEC will host three public hearings to receive oral comments for consideration in preparing the agency's report:
