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 four (4) main departments: Laboratory Services Department, Consumer Services Department, Metrology Services Department, and Feed/Food Safety & Compliance Department of SCDA.
There is a unified effort by these four groups to fulfill and comply with their legislated charge and each unit is dependent on the other to complete tasks as required by state regulation.
