How can I verify my license status?
Verify license status by first clicking on “Online Services” then “Search SCDOI Database” on the Department’s home page. Click on “Search for Agencies” or “Search for Companies” enter either the SC Agency code or the name. Next click on “Search”. Once you have found the entity’s name, click on the entity’s name and this will take you to the “Agency Demographics and License Information” page. On this page you will find the license type, license status and license qualifications.
