CERS Is Now Available http://cers.calepa.ca.gov/
Starting January 1, 2013 all CUPA regulated businesses are required by law (Assembly Bill 2286) to submit business information electronically through the California Environmental Reporting System (CERS). Many of the Unified Program forms are no longer available on our website and instead must be completed online in CERS. This includes information related to your:
- Unified Program Facility Permit
- Hazardous Materials Business Plan (HMBP)
- Hazardous Waste
- Hazardous Waste Onsite Treatment
- Hazardous Waste Tank Closures
- Remote Waste Consolidation
- Recyclable Materials Reports
- Underground Storage Tanks (UST)
- Aboveground petroleum storage over 1,320 gallons (APSA)
Find and request lead user access to your facility
MCEHD has uploaded facility data for all facilities that were in our database on January 1, 2013. You must find your facility in CERS and request access. MCEHD will not grant lead user access to a contractor, consultant, or employee if he/she is not listed as a contact for the facility unless a signed letter on letterhead is received from the business. After MCEHD receives the letter, contractor/consultant can request access to the facility through CERS.
Once you have been granted lead user access, you are now responsible for adding additional users to the account. We recommend at least two lead users in case one person leaves or loses their username/password.
MCEHD will continue having CERS workshops periodically. Please contact our department if you wish to attend a CERS workshop.
