To make changes to your practice location address, registrant name, or drug schedules on your current South Carolina (DHEC) controlled substances registration, follow the applicable instructions below. To make corresponding changes to your current DEA registration, follow the applicable instructions on the DEA’s website here.

To notify DHEC, you must submit a completed Address Change Request form (DHEC 1199) via email to bdc@dhec.sc.gov or via fax to 803-896-0627, in order for an address change request to be processed by DHEC.

Registrant Name Change

To make changes to your registrant name on your DHEC controlled substances registration, you must notify DHEC via email at bdc@dhec.sc.gov or via fax at 803-896-0627 with your name change request and attach a copy of the marriage license, divorce decree, or court document that supports the change, in order for a registrant name change to be processed by DHEC.
