Texas Department of Agriculture – License Suspension and Revocation Guideline

The Texas Department of Agriculture (the department) publishes these internal guidelines for license suspension and revocation, which have not been previously communicated in writing, in order to provide greater transparency for licensees and other interested stakeholders. The guidelines were developed and are being published to encourage consistency in the department’s internal enforcement processes as well as adequate enforcement responses to instances of egregious noncompliance. Although monetary penalties will remain the department’s primary and first-choice method of deterrence, license suspensions and revocations are an important tool for dealing with recalcitrant or egregious violators who are not deterred by such penalties.
