Texas Audit Policy Act Guidance Updated

TCEQ has revised its Guide to the Texas Environmental, Health, and Safety Audit Privilege Act (the "Act") to reflect changes made during the 2013 Legislative Session. The changes from the 83rd Legislative Session were designed to enhance applicability of the Act in pre-acquisition contexts. Specifically, pre-acquisition audits are exempt from both the requirements for advanced notice and the six-month time-frame for completion. The Guide incorporates these legislative changes but notes that they are not otherwise expected to "significantly affect the way the TCEQ has been implementing the Audit Act since 1995." See Guide at 3. The new Guide provides model letters for pre-acquisition audits. Exhibit G. A copy of the new guidance is available athttp://www.tceq.texas.gov/publications/rg/rg-173.html.
