The TCEQ and and Occupational Licenses

The Permitting and Registration Support Division of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, or TCEQ, is responsible for issuing licenses that you must have in order to engage in certain occupations in Texas that may have an environmental impact.

With each license, there are a number of requirements that you must fulfill before they can grant you the license. There are certain restrictions, however, related to criminal convictions.

These guidelines outline the possible consequences of having a criminal conviction on your ability to obtain and hold an occupational license, as well as your responsibilities in this regard.

They also describe the general factors that they consider when they review criminal histories, as well as how particular categories of crime may relate to each occupational license.

Please note that nothing in this publication is intended to contradict any federal or state statute, rule, or regulation. In case of any apparent contradiction, the statute, rule, or regulation is authoritative.

For more information regarding all the different requirements for occupational licenses, see their Occupational Licensing Web page, at www.tceq.texas.gov/licensing or you can view the explanatory document here.
