Enforcement Information

To report conduct detrimental to public health, safety and welfare or that may be a violation of the Texas Geoscience Practice Act, please submit a Complaint Form (Form XI) to TBPG at P.O. Box 13225, Austin, Texas  78711, by mail or e-mail, or see the page File a Complaint.

How to File a Complaint with the Board

To assist in filling out the complaint form, please refer to the Texas Geoscience Practice Act and Board Rules, which are linked on the top of this page, under “Board”.  If you need further assistance or a printed copy of the Statute or Rules, please contact the Board at (512) 936-4400.

Please fill out the form as completely as possible and include copies of drawings, contracts, letters, photographs, reports or any other documents that support your complaint.  Completed complaint forms and supporting documentation must be mailed to the Board rather than e-mailed.

To act upon your complaint, the Board must know as many details as possible about the issue: the “who, what, when, where, how”, and, if possible, “why”.  Please provide as much information as you can, including the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of other persons who know about the problem you’re complaining about.  Give the names of city and/or county staff if you have had contact with them and they know something about your complaint.  The Board needs all the facts you can provide in order to process your complaint.  The Board does not have the staff to investigate inquiries based only upon suspicion or speculation.  Before mailing your complaint, make an extra copy of everything for your own files.  That way, if the Board has a question or needs clarification regarding your complaint, you’ll be able to find the information being asked about.

If you intend to file complaints against multiple people or entities, please file separate individual complaints against each person, business or governmental entity so that confidentiality of each complaint can be kept while the investigation progresses.

For more information, please see the page File a Complaint.

Please contact TBPG if you have any questions regarding a complaint or the complaint filing process.
