If your out-of-state facility would like to offer mobile X-ray services in South Carolina, you must first apply for and receive an Out-of-State Facility Registration Approval (FRA).
There are no reciprocity agreements with other states in effect.
To apply for your Out-of-State FRA, you must:
- Complete the Out-of-State FRA request form (pdf)
- Enclose the required supporting documentation
- Enclose the application fee of $62.50
S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control
Bureau of Radiological Health
2600 Bull Street
Columbia, South Carolina 29201
Each out-of state facility must give the Department written notice at least five (5) working days prior to the use of the x-ray machine in South Carolina. Complete the Operating Schedule Form (pdf) and submit to this Department.
If, for a specific case, the five working day period would pose an undo hardship, you may request permission from the Department to proceed sooner by calling (803) 545-4435 .
Requirements for the Out-of-State Facility Application Fee (RHB 2.3.4) and Out of State X-ray Machines (RHB 2.8) can be found in Regulation 61-64, X-Rays (Title B).
