Texas Register Preamble

The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts the repeal of 22 TAC §531.1, Fidelity; §531.2, Integrity; and §531.3, Competency, in Chapter 531, Canons of Professional Ethics and Conduct, without changes to the text, as published in the March 11, 2022, issue of the Texas Register (47 TexReg 1185). The rules will not be republished.

The repeal of these sections is made as a result of the Commission's quadrennial rule review, and more specifically, is the result of a new definitions section in this chapter, which will require the renumbering of these sections. TREC will renumber and replace these rules, with some changes.

No comments were received on the repeal as published.

The repeal is adopted under Texas Occupations Code, §1101.151, which authorizes the Texas Real Estate Commission to adopt and enforce rules necessary to administer Chapters 1101 and 1102; and to establish standards of conduct and ethics for its license holders to fulfill the purposes of Chapters 1101 and 1102 and ensure compliance with Chapters 1101 and 1102.
