RULE §535.403Renewal of Registration
ISSUE 05/20/2022
ACTION Final/Adopted
Preamble Texas Admin Code Rule

(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 and education 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 to timely renew 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)If the registration expires on a Saturday, Sunday or any other day on which the Commission is not open for business, a renewal application is considered to be timely filed when the application is received or postmarked no later than the first business day after the expiration date of the registration.

(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.

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the adoption and found it to be a valid exercise of the agency's legal authority.
