TO AMEND SECTION 40-7-190 OF THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE STATE BOARD OF BARBER EXAMINERS, SO AS TO AUTHORIZE THE BOARD TO GRANT VARIANCES FROM A REGULATION PROMULGATED UNDER THIS CHAPTER UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.
Amend Title To Conform
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 40-7-190 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 40-7-190. (A) The board may make reasonable rules and regulations for the sanitary management of barbershops and barber schools and for the administration of the provisions of this chapter and may enforce such rules and regulations. The sanitary rules and regulations so prescribed shall be approved by the Department of Health and Environmental Control. A copy of the rules and regulations adopted by the board shall be furnished by the board to the owner or manager of each barbershop or barber school in the State and such copy shall be posted in a conspicuous place in each barbershop or barber school, together with the rating of the inspection so made.
(B) A barbershop owner or barber school or college may apply to the board for a permit for a variance from a regulation promulgated pursuant to this chapter. After opportunity for an inspection, the board may, if it deems necessary, conduct a hearing. If it determines that the proponent of a variance has demonstrated, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the conditions, practices, means, methods, operations, or processes used or proposed to be used in a particular location will provide a barbershop which is as safe and healthful as those which would be present if he complied with the regulation, the board may grant the permit for a variance. The permit, if issued, shall prescribe the conditions the permittee must maintain and the practices, means, methods, operations, or processes which must be adopted and utilized to the extent they differ from a given regulation. Such permit may be revoked or modified upon application of the permittee or by the board on its own motion, in the manner prescribed for its issuance under this subsection, at any time."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
