The Hazardous Materials Division (HMD) of the Department of Environmental Health is the Certified Unified Program Agency (CUPA) in the County of San Diego. The HMD, as the CUPA, regulates all of the six Unified Programs including the construction, installation, operation, repair and removal of underground storage tank (UST) systems; operation of aboveground containers and tanks storing petroleum; the generation of medical or hazardous waste; and the handling or storage of hazardous materials in reportable quantities to determine compliance with applicable provisions of the California Health and Safety Code (H&SC), the California Code of Regulations (CCR), and the San Diego County Code of Regulatory Ordinances (SDCC). The purpose of this policy is to outline the procedures for a business or facility regulated by the CUPA to dispute violations asserted by the CUPA. Section 25404.1.2 of the H&SC establishes the notice of disagreement process for minor violations of the laws and regulations governing the Unified Program. The County of San Diego CUPA will consider all disputes or disagreements related to alleged violations of the Unified Program.
