The Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) is responsible for implementing a unified hazardous materials and hazardous waste management regulatory program. The agency provides oversight of business that:

Compliance is achieved through routine inspections of all regulated facilities, and investigation of citizen based complaints and inquiries regarding improper handling and/or disposal of hazardous materials and/or hazardous wastes. Hazardous waste source reduction is a primary goal of the CUPA. Additionally, the agency provides oversight for the remediation of contaminated sites.

The CUPA identifies facilities that may have to prepare:

  • A Hazardous Materials Business Plan
  • A Federal Risk Management Plan (RMP) or
  • A California Accidental Release Prevention (CalARP) plan
  • Aboveground Petroleum Storage Act (APSA)/Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCC) or
  • Any combination of these plans

Information is collected for public access under the Community Right to Know Act and the information is reported to Federal, State, and Local agencies as required by statute and/or regulation. The intent of each plan is to prevent major off-site releases that could affect the public and/or environment, provide facility employees information on how to appropriately respond during a release, and assist emergency responders in the event of a release.
