The SOP Sub-Committee has completed their work after two years.
The TREC Commissioners have given initial approval and the new SOP and 7-3 Report Template and related rules have been posted at the Texas Register as of 11/23/12.
This is the public posting of the SOP, Rules & Report Template. Once the posting time has passed and the comments reviewed and changes made the SOP and template will become effective.
According to documents in the public posting the earliest possible adoption date is: 12/23/12.
The link to the State of Texas - Texas Register is below. It is not the easiest reading.
I’ve also attached the PDFs of the proposed SOP, Template Rules and 7-3 Template for a bit easier viewing.
Another close inspector friend of mine pulled the data at the URL above into a PDF that is also included.
The 12/2312 date above is noted as the proposed documents only need to be posted for 30-days on the Texas Register. In the past it used to be 60-days.
The TREC Commission will review input/comments at their 02/11/13 meeting and could give final approval for the proposed SOP, 7-3 Template and Rules.
If approved the likely “in effect date” would be in March-2013.
