Texas Register Preamble
The Texas Behavioral Health Executive Council adopts amended §882.22, relating to Reinstatement of a License. Section 882.22 is adopted without changes to the proposed text as published in the April 22, 2022, issue of the Texas Register (47 TexReg 2104) and will not be republished.
The adopted change is necessary to reflect the agency's ability to receive digitally certified self-query reports from the NPDB, rather than continuing to rely exclusively on self-query reports submitted by mail. The adopted change also clarifies that only a full license can be reinstated, and a transitory license used to obtain required experience for full licensure cannot.
