Mandatory Electronic Reporting for CERS Starts January 2013
All businesses, including private enterprises, government entities and educational institutions must submit their Unified Program facility reporting electronically (instead of on paper forms) starting January 1, 2013 (subject to exceptions provided by some CUPAs and PAs). For example, if your CUPA/PA requires you to submit an updated hazardous materials inventory statement by March 1, you would submit an electronic version using CERS (or a local web portal if available) either on or before March 1.
