Prison Industry Enhancement Certification Program

The Prison Industry Enhancement Certification Program (PIECP) exempts certified state and local departments of corrections from normal restrictions on the sale of inmate-made goods in interstate commerce. In addition, the program lifts restrictions on these certified corrections departments, permitting them to sell inmate-made goods to the federal government in amounts exceeding the $10,000 maximum normally imposed on such transactions.

Inmates in a South Carolina correctional facility use boards to assemble electronic cables.
