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 the six state-mandated programs:
- Hazardous Materials Business Plan (HMBP)
- California Accidental Release Program (CalARP)
- Underground Storage Tank Program (UST)
- Aboveground Storage Tank Program (APSA)
- Hazardous Waste Generator Program
- Tiered Permitting Program
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.
To learn more about the six state-mandated programs and the applicability to businesses, please refer to the CUPA Compliance Reference Manual.
