The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) implemented a new Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP) system on May 1st, 2018. SLED in partnership with IdentoGo by IDEMIA, has developed the SLED EasyPath system. This streamlined system allows SLED to process CWP's as required by statute, while offering applicants a new online renewal process and adding a new online permit replacement feature as well.

This new service will require applicants to utilize the SLED EasyPath system via the IdentoGo website. SLED will continue to process all submitted applications received online and by mail.
