(A) The board may issue a license to a holder of a certificate, license, or permit issued under the laws of any state or territory of the United States or the District of Columbia or any authority outside the United States upon a showing of substantially equivalent education, examination, and experience upon the condition that the applicant:

(1) received the designation, based on educational and examination standards substantially equivalent to those in effect in this State, at the time the designation was granted; and

(2) completed an experience requirement, substantially equivalent to the requirement provided for in Section 40-2-35(F), in the jurisdiction which granted the designation or has engaged in four years of professional practice, outside of this State, as a certified public accountant within the ten years immediately preceding the application; and

(3) passed a uniform qualifying examination in national standards and an examination on the laws, regulations, and code of ethical conduct in effect in this State acceptable to the board; and

(4) listed all jurisdictions, foreign and domestic, in which the applicant has applied for or holds a designation to practice public accountancy or in which any applications have been denied; and

(5) demonstrated completion of eighty hours of qualified CPE within the last two years; and

(6) filed an application and pays an annual fee sufficient to cover the cost of administering this section.

(B) Each holder of a certificate issued under this section shall notify the board in writing within thirty days after its occurrence of any issuance, denial, revocation, or suspension of a designation or commencement of a disciplinary or enforcement action by any jurisdiction.

Regulation 1-04 states:

(A) Documenting four (4) years of professional practices outside of South Carolina within ten (10) years immediately preceding the application; or

(B) Documenting the current education and experience requirements in effect in this State as set forth in 40-2-35; or

(C) Documenting that the education requirements for the certificate, license, or permit from another jurisdiction were the same as the requirements in South Carolina on the date of original licensure.
