1. Does Texas Occupations Code §1956.001(6-a) addition of certain batteries to the list of regulated materials change the requirements under Texas Occupations Code §1956.103 to disclose to the MRE and obtain an acknowledgement from the MRE that a battery is included in the material being sold?

No. The fact that certain batteries are now "regulated materials" under the statute does not change the requirements of Texas Occupations Code §1956.103. This only affects the MRE's reporting requirements.

2. Who can I contact if I have questions about the Texas Metals Program?

3. Where can I learn more about the terminology used in the program?

The Metals Glossary outlines some of the key terms used in the MRE program.
