Administrative Interpretations

The Administrative Interpretations section of the South Carolina Department of Consumer Affairs Website includes clarifications and explanations of the South Carolina Consumer Protection Code ("the Code"). The interpretations allow for a more detailed look at how the Code applies in specific circumstances, and clarifies terms and concepts used in the Code. To find information regarding a specific chapter of the Code, select the chapter from the list below and you will be directed to a page containing those specific Administrative Interpretations. The naming convention for the Administrative Interpretations can be best understood as chapter, subsection, year issued and interpretation number for that year. A good example is: An interpretation named 3.201-8402 would be in relation to § 37-3-201 and was the second Administrative Interpretation issued in 1984.

You will also find a short summary of what topic the Administrative Interpretation relates to. For situations in which an interpretation was issued and then was further asked to be reconsidered, you will find both the initial Administrative Interpretation as well as the reconsidered Administrative Interpretation listed for completeness.
