Service Contract Providers

A Service Contract Provider provides extended warranties to consumers for a specified period of time and for an additional cost beyond the price of the product.

TDLR adopts Administrative Rules

The Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation adopted amendments to an existing rule at 16 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Chapter 77, §77.42 and the proposed repeal of existing §77.44, regarding the Service Contract Providers and Administrators program. The adopted amendments implement House Bill 4120 of the 86th Legislature, Regular Session (2019), which allows certain service contract providers to reduce the financial security deposit. The adopted repeal removes outdated provisions which are no longer applicable to the program.

The adoption justification was published in the November 22, 2019 issue of the Texas Register (44 TexReg 7185). The updated rule chapter will be made available upon its effective date of December 1, 2019.
