California Environmental Reporting System (CERS) Information

Reporting Deadline: April 1, 2019

Please ensure that CERS submissions for reporting year 2019 are completed no later than April 1, 2019.   Failure to submit before the due date may result in a late submittal fee of $398.00 pursuant to Title 12 of the Los Angeles County Code Section 12.64.045.   If you have previously submitted in CERS you may start from the existing submittal, edit any changes and submit.
As of December 28, 2017, CalEPA has replaced the existing five (5) federal hazard categories available in CERS used for the completion of chemical inventories as part of the annual hazardous materials business plan submittal with twenty-four (24) new federal hazard categories adopted by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) as a result of changes to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazard Communication Standard (HCS).  Please see the CERS Announcements page in CERS Central for background and business guidance documentation: https://cers.calepa.gov/announcements/
