Texas Passes the SB202 Rescinding its Bedding Law Requirements
Texas passed Senate Bill 2021 that effective September 1, 2015, will no longer require bedding operators (manufacturers, distributors, importers, etc.) to hold a license with the Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Bedding licenses issued by DSHS will no longer be valid or renewed on or after August 31, 2015. It is anticipated that in the fall of 2015, the DSHS will begin the process of formally repealing the existing Bedding Rules.
If manufacturer is using the Texas’s Uniform Registry Number (URN) as their Registration Number (REG. NO.) on law labels they will need to obtain new URN from another State.
