TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL, RELATING TO STANDARDS FOR LICENSING FREESTANDING OR MOBILE TECHNOLOGY, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 2859, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Department of Health and Environmental Control, relating to Standards for Licensing Freestanding or Mobile Technology, designated as Regulation Document Number 2859, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
The S.C. Code Of Laws (Section 44-7-265) establishes requirements for the promulgation of regulations for freestanding or mobile technology that will include at a minimum: 1) standards for the maintenance and operation of freestanding or mobile technology to ensure the safe and effective treatment of persons served; 2) a description of the professional qualifications necessary for personnel to operate the equipment and interpret the test results; 3) minimum staffing requirements to ensure the safe operation of the equipment and interpret the test results; and 4) that all freestanding or mobile technology must be in conformance with professional organizational standards. Promulgation of this regulation satisfies a legislative mandate requiring the Department to develop regulations to set standards for the licensing and inspection of freestanding or mobile technology.
