The County of San Diego Department of Environmental Health regulates establishments which use hazardous materials, dispose of hazardous wastes, have underground storage tanks and/or generate medical waste. The primary purpose for these regulations is to protect the health and safety of San Diego County citizens and emergency response personnel.
Businesses in the County of San Diego that generate hazardous waste or medical waste, handle hazardous materials or have underground storage tanks must apply for a Unified Program Facility Permit through the California Environmental Reporting System (CERS). Business that have a current permit will also be required to electronically submit business information through CERS. That includes all changes that have occurred at your facility, including contacts, inventory, wastes, and USTs. For additional information please visit our CERS website.
