FOIA requests

We welcome your Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests

The South Carolina Forestry Commission is committed to open, transparent and responsive government. We take seriously our responsibilities to taxpayers and the general public in providing helpful, timely and courteous service with regard to requests for any public information for which our agency is responsible.
The South Carolina Forestry Commission is likewise subject to all Freedom of Information-related legislation, including the guidelines set forth in the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act, S.C. Code 30-4-10 et. seq.

How we handle FOIA requests

All requests for public records pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act can be made in writing (physical or digital, including email, mail and/or fax). It is helpful, though not necessary, to indicate that you are “requesting FOIA-able information under the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act” in the subject/introduction of your notification, as doing so will prioritize it above other communications and action items.
To assist the SCFC staff with your request – and to better ensure a more accurate response – please be as specific as possible about the information/records you are requesting.
