Please review and distribute as appropriate.  

The purpose of this message is to respectfully remind you of the
importance of carrying forward brands from out-of-state titles.  We
continue to see many titles that are not properly branded.  RTB 007-08,
Title Brand Errors, explained the importance of ensuring that brands
from out-of-state (and Texas) are carried forward, and outlined the
significant work activities that result when brands are not carried

We need your help to correct this problem.  Please ensure that your
deputies thoroughly examine all surrendered out-of-state titles for
brands, particularly salvage brands.  Many states issue distinctive
salvage ownership documents; however, some do not.  Those that do not
simply place a brand or code on the regular title to indicate the
vehicle has been salvaged.  

The attached document is provided to assist you in locating salvage
brands to ensure they are carried forward.  The document includes
whether a state issues a distinctive salvage title, and for those that
do not, the location of the title brands.  Also attached are examples of
some out-of-state titles with their salvage brands identified.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.  If you have any
questions please contact your local Vehicle Titles and Registration
Division Regional Office.
