Dear TPCA Members,

As Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, we have received a number of inquiries about disinfection services.
Because TDA does not have a specific license category for disinfection or sanitation services it would not be covered under a TDA license. However, TDA would work any complaints regarding the misuse of a antimicrobial application since they have general purview on pesticide applications in Texas. 
Texas Department Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) does have a (sanitarian license) and it appears the sanitarian licenses may be a license for those who perform health inspections or educate regarding sanitation.
Occupations Code 1953 is their law – TDLR’s representative did provide this information. TDLR would be the best source to get clarification from and their information about the Sanitarian page of their website found here. 
If you have any additional questions, please contact the TPCA HQ Office at 
(512) 954-9664. 
Todd Kercheval 
Executive Director
