We investigate the sufficient conditions and the necessary conditions on an exchange ring R under which R has stable range one. These give nontrivial generalizations of Theorem 3 of V. P. Camillo and H.-P. Yu (1995), Theorem 4.19 of K. R. Goodearl (1979, 1991), Theorem 2 of R. E. Hartwig (1982), and Theorem 9 of H.-P. Yu (1995).
