The Small Business Team is a specially trained team that will help understand the unique challenges faced by small businesses.

A Permit Central website will offer tips and advice for applicants to help them plan.  The website will also include time frame estimates, tips for expediting the process, application forms and check the status of applications.

And a board review committee consisting of a panel of three of seven member of the S.C. Board of Health and Environmental Control to help speed up the review process.  The rotating panel will work to shorten the appeals process, which is normally heard within 60 days under state law.
