Assembly Bill (AB) 2286 became effective January 1, 2013 and required all facilities with regulated hazardous materials to use the internet to file required Unified Program information in the statewide information management system. The California Environmental Reporting System (CERS) is the only approved method for submitting required information to the Riverside County Department of Environmental Health and to each of its Participating Agencies; the cities of Corona and Riverside.
Training materials and instructions for completing a business plan can be found on the right side of this page. It is strongly recommended that you review the training documentation before you begin the process of inputting a plan. If you have further questions after reviewing our support documentation then please contact our electronic reporting specialists by phone at (951) 358-5055 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The California Environmental Reporting System (CERS) is a statewide reporting system for the reporting of Hazardous Materials Business Plans. Please only report your Hazardous Materials Business Plan in CERS. The County reporting portal has been decommissioned. Your data was transferred to CERS if you had a previously accepted submission in the portal.
The Hazardous Materials Business Plan program is implemented by the City of Riverside Fire Department for all facilities located within the incorporated limits of the City of Riverside. The City of Corona Fire Department implements the Hazardous Materials Business Plan program within the incorporated limits of the city of Corona. Please contact the appropriate city fire agency if your facility is located within the aforementioned city limits.
As of January 1, 2018, all California regulated businesses must use the new Federal Hazard Categories to prepare the Hazardous Materials Inventory submittal in CERS, and must complete the submittal by December 31st or their annual submission deadline - whichever is first.
