The Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC) was established by the Texas Legislature, 83rd Regular Session, in Senate Bill 966. The nine member Commission oversees the certification, registration, and licensing of court reporters and court reporting firms, guardians, process servers, and licensed court interpreters, and began operations on September 1, 2014. On that date, the Court Reporters Certification Board, Guardianship Certification Board, and Process Server Review Board concluded, and the Licensed Court Interpreter program at the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) was transferred to the JBCC and Office of Court Administration (OCA).
