The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) adopts amendments to 22 TAC §533.1, Definitions, and §533.8, Motions for Rehearing, in Chapter 533, Practice and Procedure, with changes to the text as published in the March 11, 2022, issue of the Texas Register (47 TexReg 1187).

The amendments to Chapter 533 are made as a result of the Commission's quadrennial rule review. The proposed changes update terminology for consistency throughout the chapter. The language "Interpreters and Translators" is added to the title of 22 TAC §533.5, Transcript Cost, to better reflect the content of the section and language is removed from subsection (b) that was inconsistent with applicable law. Subsection (f) of 22 TAC §533.7, is amended to more closely align with the applicable statute (§2001.058(e), Government Code). Finally, subsection (d) of 22 TAC §533.8 is amended to increase transparency regarding the motion for rehearing process.
No comments were received on the proposed amendments as published.
The amendments are 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.
