West Columbia, SC 29172
Consumer Protection Division: SCDA restructured and reorganized the regulatory departments into a new and efficient division. The Consumer Protection Division (CPD) is comprised of five (5) main departments: Produce Safety Department, Laboratory Services Department, Consumer Services Department, Metrology Services Department, and Feed/Food Safety & Compliance Department of SCDA.
There is a unified effort by these five groups to fulfill and comply with their legislated charge and each unit is dependent on the other to complete tasks as required by state law and regulation.
