Regulation Development Update

DHEC produces this Regulation Development Update within one business day of publication of the South Carolina State Register (the fourth Friday of each month).

The Update reports DHEC's regulation development activity, including proposed new regulations, amendments, and repeals of existing regulations, currently pending.  Each entry presents a summary, status, and (upon assignment by the S.C. Legislative Council) a searchable S.C. State Register Document Number.  Legislative Council assigns a Document Number at the Notice of Proposed Regulation stage of the regulation promulgation process.  The Document Number remains with the regulation development activity throughout the process.

While DHEC has made every effort to maintain the accuracy of content presented in this Regulation Development Update, it reserves the right to correct errors when discovered.
