Tex. Health & Safety Code Section 371.026
Registration and Reporting Requirements of Used Oil Handlers Other than Generators


The commission shall adopt rules governing registration and reporting of used oil handlers other than generators. The rules shall require that:


a used oil handler other than a generator:


register with the commission;


provide evidence of familiarity with applicable state laws and rules and management procedures applicable to used oil handling; and


provide proof of liability insurance or other evidence of financial responsibility for any liability that may be incurred in handling used oil, except that this provision does not apply to a used oil handler which is owned or otherwise effectively controlled by the owners or operators where the used oil is generated; and


a used oil processor or rerefiner must report to the commission, in the form of a letter on a biennial basis by December 1 of each odd-numbered year, the calendar year covered by the report and the quantities of used oil accepted for processing or rerefining and the manner in which the used oil is processed or rerefined, including the specific processes employed.


The commission by rule shall adopt reasonable management and safety standards for the handling of used oil.


The commission may impose a registration fee in an amount sufficient to cover the actual cost of registering used oil handlers other than generators.


A used oil transporter may consolidate or aggregate loads of used oil for purposes of transportation but may not process used oil, except that a used oil transporter may conduct incidental processing operations, including settling and water separation, that occur in the normal course of the transportation of used oil but that are not designed to produce, or make more amenable for the production of, used-oil-derived products or used oil fuel.
