Effective January 1, 2017, South Carolina law requires all resident producers or licensees holding a resident producer's license to submit fingerprints and background checks upon application for a new license or prior to the renewal of their current license. Fingerprints will be submitted directly to the Department by the vendor generally within 24 hours. Failure to comply with the fingerprinting requirement is a violation of the South Carolina insurance laws and could result in the denial of licensure. Additionally, violations of the South Carolina insurance law are subject to the penalties set forth in Code sections 38-43-100 and 38-2-10 of the South Carolina Code of Laws. Visit identogo.com to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting.
Fingerprinting does not have to be done every two years, it is a one-time requirement at this time AND everyone has to be fingerprinted again even if they have already been fingerprinted for CWP or any other reason.
