The TREC Inspector Committee (TREIC) met July 18 and discussed clarifications to 535.222, Inspection Reports, and 535.223, Standard Inspection Report Form.

Recommended Rule Changes

535.222, Inspection Reports

TREIC recommended a change to 525.222(a)(2) to clarify the two-day inspection report delivery deadline. The change clarifies that in instances where payments are provided in full prior to the inspection, the inspector is required deliver the report to the client within two days of completion of the inspection.

Quadrennial Rule Review, Chapter 535

Texas law requires state agencies, including the Commission, to undergo a comprehensive rule review every four years. During this process, the Commission reviews all currently enacted rules to determine if they should be continued, amended, or repealed.

As part of quadrennial rule review, non-substantive changes will be proposed to 535, including changing terms like “administrator” to “executive director,” removing duplicative language, and repealing outdated or expired language. All changes will be proposed at the August Commission meeting.
