Filing a Complaint 

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 contracts, letters, photographs, reports or any other documents that support your complaint.

To act upon your complaint, please include 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.  Include all the facts you can with your complaint.  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.
