RULE §535.403Renewal of Registration
Historical Texas Register

(a) Renewal application.

  (1) A registration expires on the date shown on the face of the registration issued to the license holder.

  (2) If a license holder intends to renew an unexpired registration, the license holder must, on or before the expiration date of the current registration:

    (A) file a renewal application through the online process on the Commission's website or on the applicable form approved by the Commission;

    (B) submit the appropriate fee required by §535.404 of this title (relating to Fees); and

    (C) comply with the fingerprinting requirements under the Act.

(b) Failure to provide information requested by the Commission in connection with a renewal application is grounds for disciplinary action under§1101.653 of the Act.

(c) A registrant who fails timely to pay a renewal fee must apply for and receive a new registration in order to act as an easement or right-of-way agent.

(d) The Commission will deliver a registration renewal notice to a license holder three months before the expiration of the license holder's current registration. Failure to receive the certificate renewal notice does not relieve a certificate holder of the obligation to renew a certificate.

(e) The Commission is not required to notify a business entity such as a corporation, limited liability company, or partnership that has failed to designate an officer, manager, or general partner who meets the requirements of §1101.502 of the Act. The Commission may not renew a registration issued to a business entity that has not designated an officer, manager, or general partner who meets the requirements of the Act.

(f) When the last day of the renewal period falls on a non-business day, a renewal application is timely filed when the application is received not later than the first business day following the last day of the renewal period. "Non-business" days are Saturday, Sunday, and any other day upon which the Commission offices are closed due to a state holiday designated in the General Appropriations Act or by other law.

(g) Denial of Renewal. The Commission may deny an application for renewal of a registration if the registrant is in violation of the terms of a Commission order.
